Recorded on Christmas Day, ‘They Won’t Be Home For Christmas’ is the lead single from US production outfit Wavy Jones’ upcoming album ‘as we stand amongst ourselves’ – due out next month.

Spearheaded by the group’s newest member, old Major (real name Noah Stewart), the track is a warm R&B-influenced instrumental, enhanced by ambient elements and touches of trap.

Without a trace of self-pity, the tune is encased in reflective, lonesome atmospheres and melancholy synths.

Because of this textured backdrop, ‘They Won’t Be Home For Christmas’ easily provides depth – so vocals aren’t ever really needed to flesh things out.

After its midway point however, towards its climax, the track’s hip-hop roots shuffle further into the spotlight.

Steely, impactful, cutthroat beats blend with the instrumental’s searching, wandering, lost tones.

This balance is alluringly maintained throughout the cut’s duration – and is in many ways the reason for its success.

Find ‘They Won’t Be Home For Christmas’ on Spotify.
