I like Ralegh’s songs because he doesn’t throw chords together in that easy indie manner. The parts of his songs fit together awkwardly and the music takes you somewhere. They’ve all been great but this is my favourite of the xmas downloads so far.

Here is Ralegh himself on his song.

“I think it was Robert Lowell who said there’s no poetry without sentiment. Christmas songs come fully loaded with it. I wanted to tackle that head on, to try and write in a sentimental mode but also say something honest. Thing is, while we often think of ‘sentiment’ and ‘honesty’ in music as diametrically opposed, they’re really part of the same circle. I find the most interesting things arise in the place where they meet.
