CURXES #4 - Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

The second Christmas song posted in a matter a hours and another too good to hold off until after I've posted my 'albums of the year' (hopefully starting later this week, if I write the things in time!)...

Fresh from their inclusion in the 'Blog Sound of 2013' list CURXES have shared a song that sounds, ermm, very little like Curxes. Stripping away every ounce of the 'dramatic', 'crazed' and 'monstrous' tags the duo have previously been attached to their version of "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" is bare, melancholic and stunning.

Subtle guitar textures and twinkling xylophone provide an intimate backdrop for this simple yet heart-moving rendition where Roberta's voice soars with such extraordinary emotive power. Staggering in its elegance and beauty, listen below and download (again for FREE) via Bandcamp now.
