Conner Eko is an emerging indie synth pop singer-songwriter located in the Bay Area, California. Returning in 2021 after years in hiatus from music, Eko has returned with his poignant sophomore release ‘Christmas Morning Goodbye’.
The single includes some festive elements with its glistening piano and Eko’s soaring vocals but carries the powerful message of saying goodbye to a loved one. The themes of the holiday track are refreshing, facing the facts that a lot of people experience heartbreak and sadness during the holiday season and may want a change versus hearing the same overly joyful corporate products of the holidays.
Conner Eko on the themes of the track:“The song can be about a complete breakup between lovers, or them just moving past and healing from deep unclosed wounds. It is about personal and interpersonal forgiveness and the solace that can come from being honest and real about the fact that things are never perfect and that is okay, if we are brave to omit our own faults, and confront them and each other with an open heart. Although extremely challenging, this act can allow parties involved to open up new doors and close the one with all their problems (“a gift”).”
