There’s a familiarity in this style of seasonal writing, for sure, but melodically and indeed vocally there’s something enjoyably fresh about this new release. It fits the mold of the moment well yet it also presents an alternative option for those who’ve grown tired of the same old repeated classics.
The song’s hook is beautifully upbeat yet miserable at the very same time, it uplifts with that hit of reality & the sudden musical brightness. Linda Tourje keeps things real & this song is quickly becoming a personal favourite as Christmas draws nearer.
With the support of the band Stevie and the Snowflakes, who helped bring the idea to life, I Believe In Christmas is a pop-rock offering that introduces a refreshing and upbeat new sound this Christmas – whilst still reminding us of all the things we generally love about this time of year.
If you’re searching for a playlist this winter that feels seasonal – brings warmth, calm, togetherness – but that doesn’t quite line up with the big-band, vocal-driven feel of the majority of releases, Winter Romance is easily worth a look.
A stunning album, a pleasure to have play for you and a refreshing take on Christmas music that embraces the listener in a subtle but magnificent manner. Absolutely worth downloading either for yourself or a loved one this Christmas.
P.M.K.S have crafted this one with care. As far as Christmas songs go, this is undoubtedly one of the more easy to access, humble, enjoyable releases to date.
One by one I found traditional songs that I thought worked well with my solo piano arrangements. Those are the ten songs that ended up on Toyland.
Peter Senior gets set to kick off your Christmas this year with a fresh yet rightfully seasonal sounding single that’s easy to enjoy.
Musically the single works well in setting the right kind of vibe for cosy nights by the fire – the gentle groove has a calming energy about it; set it playing & get to work wrapping presents or writing cards.
A subtle, delicate ambiance fits well among the coziness of winter nights by the fire, with just a touch of the sparkle that runs through seasonal songs.
The raw energy of punk rock makes for an unexpected approach to Christmas music. A new concept, a fresh melody, an organic yet subtly heavy musicality.
The concept stands out & the melody sinks in very quickly. It’s a gorgeous release, a welcome addition to the uplifting joy of a wonderful time of year.
