Holly Macve wraps up 2020 with her original festive single "Wonder".

"Wonder" is Macve's first release since July's "Little, Lonely Heart", and is accompanied by a video filmed by James Sharp at All Saints Church in Hove.

Speaking about the location for the video, Macve says, "It’s a beautiful space and I wanted it to be a one shot video so it felt like a direct performance. I’ve missed singing to an audience so much this year, communicating my music with this video was the closest I could get to the real thing."

She adds of the song, "As another year passes, time feels like a runaway train and all my memories of winter blur together as one. This time of year makes me think of Mulled wine, Elvis and spending time with my closest ones. "Wonder" is a nostalgic montage, the sounds and imagery of a romantic Christmas time, and a reflection of all the things and people I may miss this year. It was a spontaneous song, I wrote it a few weeks back and then spent the following days alone in my bedroom producing it, arranging the strings and trying to create the sound of the dreamy, bittersweet music I was hearing in my head."

Macve is yet to follow up her 2017 debut album Golden Eagle.

Holly Macve's "Wonder" single is out now on Modern Sky.
