Ladies and gentlemen, it’s the first X-Mas single of the year! jumping the gun slightly in early November (is it time to feel X-Massy yet?), but still wining the prize is Canadian ElectroPop noiseniks Dragonette, who have managed to be seasonal and ‘down with tha kids’ by combining a bittersweet X-Mas tune with text messaging. Nice!
Merry Xmas (Says Your Text Message) has got bells in it, we should make that clear from the start, and choir sounds. Oh and copious amounts of the work “Fuck”, which is pretty special for an X-Mas song, also pronouncing X-Mas, “X-Mas” is appealing too. So, as you can probably gather, this is the anti-X-Mas love song set the traditional seasonal Pop that’s has had a few rounds in Dragonette’s grinding machine, sounding in-your-face but still holing on to some of that sparking X-Mas tune hopefulness and majesty. The best of all worlds really.
