Holiday Stuff - EP

Alessia Cara has the kind of voice that feels like a warm hug—tender, cozy, persistently hopeful. The latter comes in handy on her festive EP Holiday Stuff, a four-track project that shines a light on the season’s more melancholy side. (Because let’s face it: For all the buzz around comfort and joy, there’s also a lot of pressure and pain.) Through two original songs (“Make It to Christmas,” “The Only Thing Missing”) and two covers (James Moody and Eddie Jefferson’s “Moody’s Mood for Love,” Nat “King” Cole’s “The Christmas Song”), Cara sketches the story of a couple on thin ice: Will they make it through the holiday? Or will all the stress of the season break them? Whatever happens, here, she makes it all sound gravy.
