Pre-listen to the A-side “Det Är Inte Snön Som Faller” from The Bristles new two tracks single, both digitally & on vinyl 7″.
Out December 5th on Svindel Records!
Each artist with self respect is recording Christmas songs. Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylan, Lynyrd Skynyrd, who has released two, to name a few. Now the Swedish punk rockers the Bristles also join this crowd.
It’s the Norwegian label Svindel records who release the Christmas record with the Bristles versions of Schlagers Christmas single from 1980, Anders F Rönnbloms Det är inte snön som faller (It’s Not Snow That’s Falling) and Ebba Gröns Nu slocknar tusen människoliv (Now Thousand Lives Fades Away).
– We thought it was appropriate to bring a different perspective on this feast, says Svegis, the band’s guitarist. The pc-critical perspective which, although obvious, drowns in the peddlers praise to consumerism.
The record is released on vinyl, but will also be available digitally on Spotify and similar services. The songs will also be available for downloading at PirateBay.
– We choose the songs we cover with great care. Last time we did the Swedish National Anthem, Ebba Gröns Beväpna er (Arm Yourself). So when we discussed Christmas songs the songs on Schlagers Christmas record from 1980, Anders F Rönnbloms Det är inte snön som faller och Ebba Gröns Nu släckas tusen människoliv, became natural choices. They’re both classic Christmas songs.
