The festive season is approaching us, and Hull’s post-punks LIFE have decided to release their own re-interpretation of “Jingle Bells”. It sounds very fun and it is a great addition to your darker and more twisted Christmas playlists.
This year was a big one for the band, as they have put out their new (and probably best one) LP North East Coastal Town and toured extensively. Looks like they do not plan to stop in 2023 too, as they have already lined up some shows for January and February, with the slot at Rockaway Beach before an Independent Venue Week run visiting northern coastal towns.
Speaking of the new track, vocalist Mez Sanders-Green says:
“When Christmas was lost to Covid/Lockdown we put on a livestream from our Moon Factory studio in Hull. It made us smile, it made people laugh at home and most importantly it made my little boy dance around my flat in Hull!
This year, following an incredible tour of our latest album, we wanted to celebrate at the LIFE AGM and got in the festive spirit to record the ‘LIFEMAS’ version of Jingle Bells.
Yes, we wore tinsel, yes, we wore Xmas shaped sunglasses and yes, we just had a ton-of-fun. Is it serious, hell-no but hopefully the track just makes people laugh and dance with their kids, pets, nan’s and gate-crashing X-mas neighbours – reach for your Satsuma and enjoy!”.
