And Anyway It’s Christmas, !!!

And Anyway It’s Christmas, !!!

Few artists, associations, etc. outside of Ann Summers could be as openly capable of rendering Christmas quite as sexy as Nic Offer et al. And although !!!-shaped gifts have been in no short supply thus far this year, the genre-bending funk minstrels releasing THR!!!ER and subsequently touring rather extensively, we couldn’t advocate unwrapping And Anyway It’s Christmas heartily enough.

Somehow reminiscent of Wham!, Spandau Ballet and SUM/ONE all at once, the song makes for a festive shuffle as well suited to sordid office parties as it is painful familial gatherings, Offer’s ever-louche vocal the proverbial bow tying this timely prezzie together. But also hung from a figurative tree cultivated in a kind of synthesised Miami heat musical, glitzy aestival guitars sprinkled with Stardust vim and slippery bass lines suggest And Anyway It’s Christmas may yet mark itself out as an essential listen all year round…
