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!
It’s about time we landed firmly on home soil – yes we’ve had a couple of bands in this series who are from our region but no one representing our home town of Sunderland, England. On that note, we present one of the most prolific bands from the city – and one of its foremost exponents of promoting culture and music in the area – who are launching a song filled with Christmas cheer. Frankie & The Heartstrings have administered the help of Edwyn Collins to aid them in their quest to bring cheer to Sunderland and beyond in their tune ‘(Too Right) It’s Christmas,’ which is filled with everything you’d expect from the group: call and response, jaunty guitars, feel-good vibes, a brass section… It’s all here in a lovingly fun package.
Listen to ‘(Too Right) It’s Christmas’ below.
