Welcome back to the eighth day of 25 Days of Christmas. Here on ai love music, let’s celebrate this warm holiday season by transforming the Daily Feature into 25 Days of Christmas. Each day, we will feature a holiday song from any artist from any genre. Today’s holiday song is actually an album, which is Apocalyptic Christmas by the UK band The Pocket Gods.
The album is a mixture of newly created tunes as well as reimagined classics., but in a cataclysmic indie pop way. Their lead single, which shares the same title as the album, is a “cheery” take on the holiday spirits or maybe it isn’t. Maybe it is just this: Some say Christmas will be canceled but what if it’s actually the end of the world!. This ominous feel is in the instrumentation as well as the lyrical theme in many of the tracks like “Fuck the Rules”, “Stop The (Covid) Cavalry”, and others that reflect this tumultuous year.
But there are the classics like “Silent Night”, “Auld Lange Syne”, and “Santa Clause is coming to town” where the bands have their own personal flair to these classic tunes.
If you are looking for a sardonic indie-pop Christmas album with relatable lyrical content and dark rock musicality, then you have to check out the Pocket Gods’Apocalyptic Christmas.
