It was earlier this year, with the release of her debut EP Colours, that we were first introduced to the captivating sounds of Lisa Maps. In a relatively short amount of time, the Canberra-based singer-songwriter has crafted a sound that feels simultaneously grounded and explorative; it’s rooted in folk, but stretches into far more exciting and far-reaching sonic territories.
Now, Maps has unveiled her follow-up single; a Christmas-inspired track titled Come Home (A Christmas Song). With the track’s release, she continues to build her incredible penchant for crafting unique gems of sound. If you’re not already familiar with this name, we strongly recommend you change that.
On her new single Come Home (A Christmas Song), Canberra-based artist Lisa Maps teams with Jedda Do to deliver a heartfelt and distinctly Australian Christmas tune.
Throughout the new single, Lisa Maps glides through a concoction of pop, folk, and alt-country, delivering a sound uniquely her own. With rich, textured instrumental arrangements and endearing vocal melodies, Come Home (A Christmas Song) is brimming with pure, heartfelt musical charm.
Across the track’s near-four-minute duration, Maps weaves a distinctly Australian tale; one that’s guaranteed to resonate with you in some fashion. Relatable lyrics are woven through warm guitar tones, creating something that will undoubtedly evoke a sense of nostalgia.
Come Home (A Christmas Song) is the latest in a string of consistently great releases from Lisa Maps, and judging by the quality of everything we’ve heard so far, I think we can safely expect plenty more great tunes. In the meantime, do yourself a favour and listen to the new track above.
