Last year i shared some indie Christmas tunes, so i thought i'd do the same this year. i do love Christmas songs, they make me feel nostalgic, but it grates on me that they start getting played SO early! It's refreshing to have some new songs to listen to and some alternative takes on some oldies but goodies.
Coldplay have a new song out called Christmas Lights. The video is as creative and magic as always.
The Maccabees have done a cover of Walking in the Air. Which i love. love. love.
Future of Forestry have done lots of covers (they have 2 Christmas EP's available) but i think Joy to the World is my favourite, it's pure magic.
The Hurts have a Christmas song out too (which happens to be the free single of the week in the UK iTunes!). You can watch the video here.
The Killers release a Christmas Song every year in order to raise money for RED you can watch the video for this years song here. If you like it you'll be doing a good thing by buying it.
