Sofia Tavlik’s dark take on the Christmas season is refreshing as a counterpart to the frivolity of the looming season. Turn it up!
I write a Christmas song every year. And my goal is to show a different side of Christmas than what we usually hear. So I always focused on the darker side of Christmas and have this year as well. The new single “Christmas Train” is a modern take on the Krampus story, (Santa’s evil counterpart that punishes rather than spreads joy and presents). In the form of a thundering train that will steal dreams, as well as lives away from everyone in its path. — Sofia Tavlik
