Day 4 - She Came Home For Christmas - Mew

Danish indie rockers Mew with a dark, obtuse brooding track that will almost certainly start up the annual argument as to what actually constitutes a Christmas record. 

The title of this track is only mentioned in the very last line and there’s little in the frankly odd lyrics before that to suggest it’s a ‘real’ Christmas song, but somehow those Nordic sensibilities give it a cold, festive, wintery feel and in that sense it seems like a companion piece to something like Low’s ‘Just Like Christmas’. 

Anyway, you lot can argue the toss – I’m too busy trying to stop Buzz the kitten from eating the Christmas lights.
