When The Thames Froze
Today we give you a new Christmas song (well, it’s about one year old) and what a gem it is!
Former Razorlight drummer Andy Burrows and Editors frontman Tom Smith released their record Funny Looking Angels under the name Smith & Burrows. One of the best songs on the album is, When The Thames Froze . Smith & Burrows gives us a wonderful Christmas Carol with a darker undertone. A song fit for the recent economic resessions.
Q Magazine described the song as ”a Christmas anthem for modern times”.
We have chosen two version, first the official video, and second, an acoustic live version (Smith & Burrows performing ‘When The Thames Froze’ at The Station Sessions as part of the Secret Season supporting Shelter):
Our fifth offering is from the nice people at Paste Magazine, and it’s a fine compilation they are giving us.
“Fortunately, some of our favorite Paste artists have chosen to freshen the genre with new releases, whether they’re original compositions or unique takes on old holiday favorites. If you’re looking for the perfect playlist for that tired office Christmas party or just hoping to amp up your holiday spirit in a new way, look no further than the Paste Holiday Sampler.” (read more)
