SKINNY LISTER – SINGLE REVIEW

Skinny Lister – Christmas Calls 
Skinny Lister - Christmas Calls


Release Date: Out Now

Is it time? Are we ready? No? Tough – it’s the first Christmas song of 2017 and it’s an absolute cracker…. pun entirely intended. Punk-folk-pop upstarts Skinny Lister have gone early but they’ve also gone incredibly strong with ‘Christmas Calls’ which, if I don’t know better, I’d say is a scientifically calculated amalgamation of all the best bits of Christmas songs from down the years. There’s a base that is made of pure ‘Fairytale of New York’ crumbs on top of which there’s a sprinkling of the ‘In Dulci Jubilo’ vibe before the ‘Last Christmas’ video gets dolloped in generously and a good splosh of ‘Christmas Time (Don’t Let the Bells End)’ is poured in. There will be another slew of Christmas songs this year, some novelty and some serious, but you’ll be hard pushed to find a better festive ditty than this one this year so I’d get your cash down early if I were you and put it all on black 32…….no, sorry, Skinny Lister.
