Santa! Bring My Girlfriend Back! by The High Plains Drifters
The High Plains Drifters are: Larry Studnicky, John Macom, Charles Czarnecki, Mike DoCampo, Kyle Cassel and Dave Richards.
“Santa! Bring My Girlfriend Back!” is an upbeat Christmas single from genre-bending indie
band The High Plains Drifters. Produced by Greg Cohen (Robin Thicke, Nile Rodgers), the
track tells the story of a distraught man who seeks solace in drink after having his girlfriend stolen by Santa Claus. Inspired by a boozy and drama-filled Christmas dinner, the track features an array of instrumentation marrying traditional and contemporary sounds including upbeat marimbas, acoustic guitar chords, and horns reminiscent of everyone’s favorite holiday classics. After waking up the next morning and trying to remember the prior night’s holiday debacle, Larry Studnicky (HPD’s frontman) was inspired to put pen to paper and craft
the holiday tune after the melodies kept ringing in his head like a hangover. “Santa! Bring My Girlfriend Back!” is a precursor to The High Plains Drifters forthcoming second album, to be released in 2021.
