Listen: Jocelyn’s Baby - It’s My First Christmas (without them)
The indie-folk-pop group invite you to be big, messy and as queer as you want over the holiday season with their second seasonal offering.
As the holidays grows nearer, Boorloo/Perth-based four-piece Jocelyn’s Baby unveil their second Christmas single, following on from this year's double double-single releases Did It Hurt You?/Are You Listening and Grab Your Gun/Closing Time (music dies), with a seasons greeting delivered through a queer lens titled; It’s my First Christmas (without them).
Recently nominated in the West Australian Music Awards for Country Artist of the year, and amassing over 73k streams on Spotify alone for Grab Your Gun, the indie-folk-pop group have refined their country-twanged brand of bitter-sweet melodies unraveling personal and relatable narratives. Balancing the silly and joyful with the sad and mournful, It’s My First Christmas (without them) explores how Christmas can sometimes be a challenging time when you’re having to return to a muted or even closeted version of your past self, whilst remaining hopefull as singer-songwriter-guitarist Jess shares that the release “is a celebration; of found and chosen family, saying goodbye to religious guilt, and allowing yourself to be big, messy and as queer as you want to be over the holidays.”
