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!
Samuel T. Herring and William Cashion of Future Islands have a side-project called The Snails, a strange ensemble that released an EP two years ago called Worth The Wait aaaaand we’ve been waiting since then for new music. Their Christmas tune ‘Snails Christmas (I Want A New Shell)’ isn’t exactly new per se (it featured on a 2013 compilation called Baltimas!!!!! otherwise known as the world’s most excitable festive compilation) but they have re-recorded the track and given it a bit of a new sheen. And it’s got a lot of jingle bells. Lots and lots of jingle bells. What more do you want in your Christmas songs?
Listen to ‘Snails Christmas (I Want A New Shell)’ below.
