Happy December everyone! We can officially put up the trees, sing Christmas jingles, and eat our way through the month with no judgement! Picture a roaring fire, mulled wine in hand and light rain outside…and Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas covered by Elevation Falls playing in the background as the ideal compliment to top off the perfect Winter evening.
This track has everything you could ever want from a Christmas cover: deep, rich, soulful vocals paired with beautifully played piano and soft drumming, polished off with light strings. To make the track even more impressive, the vocalist is only 19, but has a sound way beyond her years.
From the song’s origin in 1944 it has been covered numerous times, yet Elevation Falls still manage to put their own spin on it. Delicate but still powerful, this should be a staple in every home this December. And what’s more? All proceeds from the single will go to The Jacket Off Your Back charity, which works with people affected by homelessness and poverty all around the world.
You can purchase the track from the band’s Bandcamp page, and help a good cause while doing so.
The band are playing Fibbers in the city centre this coming Saturday the 5th, and I reckon that will be a worthwhile gig to check out and brave the cold for!
