Alt-pop artist, Nadia Vaeh, releases a stunning new holiday single, “Holidazed & Confused.” Taking a non-traditional approach to Christmas music, the track features a strong energetic beat and solid pop vocals with layered harmonies. The song’s dark-wave sound is filled with haunting echoes that contrast emotive lyrics and a reflective outlook. Textured with familiar Christmas elements such as sleigh bells and single piano notes, Vaeh takes a pop perspective on the classic holiday sound. “Holidazed & Confused” is now available to stream and download on digital music platforms worldwide.
Based around the idea of missing someone who might not be around anymore, Nadia Vaeh wanted to create a song that expresses the confused feelings of grief during the holiday season. “It can be a really difficult time of year. Amidst the stillness, it can bring reminders that some of those loved ones are no longer with us in the physical realm,” she explains. “I wrote this song with my mom in mind. She was a little light force year-round and brought joy to so many. Her presence is always missed, but especially around this time of year when I have more time to reminisce.” Produced by Dion Shaw and Tyler Spratt and mixed and mastered by Tyler Spratt and Paris Minzer, “Holidazed & Confused” is one of Vaeh’s most personal singles yet. The song is a reflection on how the holidays can be a wonderful time of year, but also a time to reminisce about those lost.
