SONG PICK: Circa Waves – Miss Christmas (Video)
Very early this year, on January 11th to be precise, we featured British indie rock quartet Circa Waves with the lush and beautiful “Move to San Francisco”. Back then, we have already heard about a new flu outbreak somewhere deep in China but we could not imagine that the year would unfold how it did. A pandemic? Geez!
But here we are, and when asked about “Miss Christmas”, Circa Waves’ new single, frontman Kieran Shuddall says:
As no one’s been able to hug their family for half a year we wanted to give you this song. A warm Christmassy cuddle to tide you over till covid gets chinned out its shoes in 2021. We wanted to make a Christmas song that felt timeless and could sit between Mariah Carey and Paul McCartney on the nation’s Christmas Day. Pass the sprouts!
Lovely sentiment, and make this for over a year in my case, hugging family members and this will be the case way into 2021… But, “Miss Christmas” is just the perfect new addition to our holiday playlist, and we enjoy the warm and fuzzy vibes, faintly reminiscent of The Waterboys’ “The Whole of the Moon”. COV
The cover photo of the song is a clever nod to the album cover of Liverpool’s most famous band, out of social distancing necessity or a clever spark. After all, Circa Waves also call Liverpool their home. Bottom line: we love “Miss Christmas”, the song, its packaging, and the charming video!
