RØRY is seeing the year out with a new seasonal track about the more difficult parts of the holiday season.
RØRY has had an incredible 2022, going viral several times and sharing some of the most intimate and intensely human music possible.
And they are seeing the year out with one more piece of heartwrenching honesty.
It’s called ‘December Hurts’ and focuses on the things that make this time of the year difficult for so many. It’s soft and low-key but ever so affecting and further shows off RØRY’s incredible songwriting skills.
They had this to say about it:
“For some people, Christmas is really painful. Maybe someone in their family has died, or they have a dysfunctional family, or financial struggles. It can feel so isolating to feel so much pain in the middle of everyone else’s apparent joy.
My Mum died many years ago in December. That was my last Christmas. Since then all I feel is grief. I spent a few Christmases alone after my mum’s death, and they were the saddest days of my life. I’d drink myself to numb as early as possible, so I wouldn’t have to be awake throughout the day.
This song is for those of us that do not celebrate. And are instead processing pain from years gone by.”
