I’ve had a love-hate relationship with Christmas songs for a while now and while a lot of bands have come out with their own jams based around the holiday, one of my new favorites, Eyes Lips Eyes, took the cake. “Slept in Through Christmas” is a great indie dance song first and a, inventive, sly Christmas song second. It’s also further proof that a great bassline can really punch up a song–and a great bassist can really punch up a band. The video’s a fun one, its made-in-a-day quality giving it a simple, joyous feel.
In the spirit of Christmas giving, you can download the song for free by going to http://www.nimbitmusic.com/eyeslipeyes/ and entering the promo code: “NewYearsSLC” Be sure to check out this great band’s other singles while you’re there.
