What are you doing New Year's Eve?

Posted: December 16, 2020

Greetings, Gingerbread friends! The holiday season has brought you that which was foretold in summer: a new single! It took months of quarantine for us to figure out working remotely, but we are pleased to share this hopeful invitation with all of you. Stream it through the usual suspects via our Music page or click the image below to go directly to Bandcamp. No matter how you close out this year, we hope you have a happy holiday, and that we will "see" many of you in the New Year!
