Ho ho ho, Merry Christmas! For 12 days up to and including Christmas Eve we’re sharing some tunes that’ll be helping you to get into the festive spirit and ranges from everything from pop to R&B, rap to punk rock. Enjoy!
Since releasing her single ‘Feel It’ back in 2014, Ellen Murphy – better known as Only Girl – has been quietly honing her craft and creating understated pop with an R&B twist. She’s currently working on her new EP, which is due out in early 2016, but has found the time to contribute to a new compilation of Christmas tunes in aid of the breast cancer awareness charity Coppafeel, It’s Coming On Christmas. ‘This Time Of Year’ is beautifully restrained and lets Murphy’s voice shine through accompanied by a twinkling piano and the faint tones of a choir in the chorus. And yes, there are a few jingle bells towards the end, just in case the warming gorgeousness of the track wasn’t enough to get you in the mood for a good mug of mulled wine.
Listen to ‘This Time of Year’ below. It’s Coming On Christmas is out now.
