MP3// Peachcake: What Happens When Santas Sleigh Gets Lost?

Peachcake have been dissected over here before when I covered their five-track EP back in September! Three months later and here we are with, if you haven't guessed already, a Christmas inspired number from the Arizonian electro-rock quartet! Based around deaths, which isn't as bad as it sounds, 'What Happens When Santa's Sleigh Gets Lost?' is a four minute masterpiece. Written with the hilariously pretentious belief that they could record a Christmas song to surpass all Christmas songs, I choked back the laughter when I arrived at the conclusion that they might have managed to do so! A jangly beat sparks a little foot tapping from the off. Met by the suitably whimsical and wistful vocals, the singer relays line after line of winter joy. "Feigning our best, most vacant smile / But then we really think" is a favourite of mine, but every word here is sang with a contented conviction. Stream above and grab it for free from Peachcake's Christmas grotto. Or their SoundCloud over here! ;)
