Los Campesinos! are celebrating the holidays with a new Christmas-themed single titled, “A Doe to a Deer”. It sports all the hallmarks of a typical Campesinos anthem, with spiraling instrumentation and cajoling hymns like “If you’ll be mine for Christmas / A doe to a deer / I’ll be home for Christmas / And home will be here.” Again, it’s all sing-along, feel good stuff, which is quite odd considering the band’s bassist Ellen Waddell recently announced that she’s leaving the group. Oh well, there’s always January to mourn. For now, download the free track below and divvy up the gingerbread.
