Album: A Very BROS Christmas (Vol. 1)
Release Date: November 24, 2017
Released a mere month before Christmas Eve, Currie brothers Ewan and Shamus gave us all an early Christmas gift with their two track Christmas EP, A Very BROS Christmas (Vol. 1). Ewan, also known for The Sheepdogs, has paired with his brother before to bring their rock sound to the masses and wrote the two Christmas songs in homage to classic holiday songs from decades past.
It’s Christmas Day and These Things Comfort Me are the only tracks on the release, but they contain enough Christmas spirit to satiate the listener. Including the almost necessary jingle bells in the background, It’s Christmas Day is easily the more festive between the two. Lyrics about peace on Earth, roasting chestnuts, and Jack Frost, the song is about coming together with everyone for the holidays. The latter is a much more modern sounding holiday song. It has a quick pace, upbeat sound, and still manages to include the sound of silver bells.
Short but sweet, A Very BROS Christmas (Vol. 1) can easily become a staple in your holiday playlist to get you into the spirit of the season. Perhaps there can be a Christmas miracle and the brothers will gift us a volume two for next holiday season.
I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
