Singles With Lachlan: Welcome to Christmas Season

Wishing you a safe and happy holiday period from all of us here at Lachlan.

Polish Club : All I Want For Christmas Is You

Mariah’s ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ is undoubtedly the sickest Christmas song, and Polish Club whip up a tidy little rock ‘n’ roll version here. Does what it says on the tin. Or a Christmas version of a tin. Now I’m thinking of the Tin Lids. There’s an idea for a viral video: Tin Lids reunion. They can even plug the old man’s new book or whatever.


Wolf Alice : Santa Baby

Wait maybe ‘Santa Baby’ is the sickest Christmas song. Wolf Alice strip it back for a hushed fireside ballad. Turning Santa into a sugar daddy never sounded so sweet. And maybe just a little bit messed up when you think about it.


Tropical Strength : Tomorrow Never Snows

Tropical Strength have a crack at an Australian-angled original, their Wilson brothers adoration shining through stronger than their ability to hit Wilson brothers harmonies.


Jeremy Neale : Christmas (Turn This Around)

Power-pop with a tinge of melancholy makes for a good fit for a Christmas single for those who ain’t too crash hot on the whole Christmas thing. Needs a touch of flair. Reminds me of the store-bought vegetarian roasts that taste just like chicken stuffing that will be pretty impossible to buy this week as families stock up for vego Chrissy lunch attendees who would be happier with an eggplant on the barbie to be honest. But it still hits the spot.
