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!
Tis’ the season and so here’s a festive tune by a band who don’t on the surface sound like they have any place coming near the hallowed altar of Christmas songs. But married duo Jeremy Warmsley and Elizabeth Sankey – aka Summer Camp – have a long tradition of making winter tunes behind them, and ‘I Don’t Wanna Wait Til Christmas’ is just the latest.
Like much of the band’s output, it’s a rivetingly good piece of pop music, and is replete with the cute sounds of a glockenspiel and typically sweet melodies. To keep that vibe going, the pair have also released an accompanying video that’s a montage of VHS and Super 8 tapes salvaged from… well, who really knows where? The song is taken from their brand new festive EP, which is out now.
Watch ‘I Don’t Wanna Wait Til Christmas’ below.
