Polish Club enlist a couple of mates to cover All I Want For Christmas Is You
A festive little treat from one of our favourite Australian rock groups, who kick off their last tour for 2017 tomorrow.
While the inevitable plague of Mariah Carey and Michael Bublé Christmas covers wreck havoc on our retail workers and everyone starts counting down the days until their end-of-year-break, it's an obvious sign that Christmas – everyone's least favourite best holiday – is quickly approaching. Capping off a ripper year thus far (one that saw them become one of our favourite Australian rock bands with their new album, Alright Already), Polish Club have decided to hop on the silly season train to cover the classic All I Want For Christmas, enlisting a couple of famous mates for the process. The clip features everyone from 360, to Anthony Albanese, to the DZ Deathrays and Northeast Party House, and it looks like a pretty good time:
It also comes with a properly-recorded Spotify (and vinyl!) version and a special B-side, titled I Hate You But You Gotta Stay (On Christmas Day), which continues their tongue-in-cheek approach to the holiday season. "I Hate You But You Gotta Stay (On Christmas Day) is a tongue-in-cheek comment on how Christmas brings everyone together, regardless of how you might feel about them," says lead singer Novak. "I wanna stress that the lyrics are completely fictionalised. I do not have a racist grandma. But I think it will resonate with some people. There's a wide variety of characters at every Christmas table. But hey, love prevails!" Be sure to catch them on tour with West Thebarton and Diet (or Stella Donnelly if you're in Perth) this December – dates below.
