It seems as though every man and his dog wants to get a little slice of the festive season pie this year. Our box has overflowed in recent weeks with Christmas favourites from Ceelo Green, Christina Perri, Rod Stewart, Karmin, The Collective, Michael Buble, Delta Goodrem, Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta, The Killers and The Voice contestants, along with Barry Southgate and Cosima Devito (more about them later this morning).
Now Canadian electro poppers Dragonette are in on the action too, releasing their new track ‘Merry Xmas (Says Your Text Message)’ over in the UK (no sign of it locally at this stage).
But whereas most Christmas ditties are all about sharing, giving, good will to all men, this one provides a little bit of a twist, telling the tale of a relationship that’s turned a little pear shape.
So if you’re sick of all the niceness, fun and frivolity of the season, are in a bit of a ‘bah humbug’ mood and want something a little anti-Christmas, this just might be right up your alley (or perhaps down your chimney).
