Los Campesinos! announce holiday EP, share “When Christmas Comes” — listen

on November 17, 2014, 1:15pm

Welsh indie rockers  Los Campesinos! will celebrate Christmas a bit early with the release of a new holiday-themed EP. Due out December 8th, A Los Campesinos! Christmas features five festive originals alongside a cover of Mud’s “Lonely This Christmas”. Mixed by John Goodmanson, the EP follows last year’s full-length LP, No Blues.

As a first taste, Los Campesinos! have premiered the EP’s opening track, “When Christmas Comes”. Featuring ornate strings and a peppy, jubilant spirit, it’s easy to imagine this song landing on twee holiday mixtapes for years to come. Listen in below.

Christmas-centric releases are becoming something of a semi-annual tradition for Los Campesinos!: In 2010, they released “Kindle a Flame in Her Heart”, which they followed in 2012 with “A Doe to a Deer”.
