“Santa, You Owe Me”, from all-female country rock force Antigone Rising, is a witty, sassy take on getting your just desserts for doing Santa’s dirty work. In addition to sharing stages with The Rollings Stones, Aerosmith, and the Allman Brothers Band, Antigone Rising has also traveled to the Middle East as cultural ambassadors for the U.S. Embassy and founding member Kristen Ellis-Henderson was featured on the cover of Time Magazine’s groundbreaking Marriage Equality Issue..
The track’s lyrical sarcasm is perfectly blended with shuffling rockabilly drums, ho-ho harmonies, and a fuzzy blues-rock guitar solo that belongs on the naughty list. A welcome break from Christmas clichés, “Santa You Owe Me” is also a great portrait of the band’s smart country attitude captured on their forthcoming EP and new video, “That was the Whiskey”, co-written with Nashville song writer Lori McKenna (Faith Hill, Little Big Town, Hunter Hayes).
