Queer icon Marie Ulven, known by the stage name Girl in Red, has just dropped a heartwarming Christmas song ahead of the festive period. ‘Two Queens in a King Sized Bed’ is a completely touching track, guaranteed to make your heart smile during these trying times.
The track is undoubtedly a perfect fusion between a Christmas track and a romantic love song. Beginning with light sleigh bells and a twinkling, catchy piano riff which dominates much of the music, the song is beautifully understated. The single also makes use of string instruments which, combined with trademark bells, creates the perfect Christmas atmosphere.
Marie’s tender lyrics and her angelic vocals which express them are the stars of the show. As is common of her vocal style, Marie oscillates between airy highs and alto lows, injecting all the emotion we hear through the lyrics.
If there’s anything good that 2020 has brought us, it’s a queer Christmas song. These moving lyrics express the bliss of spending Christmas with the one you love, and I have no doubt that they will resonate with fellow woman-loving-women this Christmas.
We are extremely excited as to what Girl in Red will bring us next. But for now, you can stream ‘Two Queens in a King Sized Bed’ below!
