Song of the Day: Glow Kit - Christmas Daze

Song of the Day
12/22/2016
KEXP

Every Monday through Friday, we deliver a different song as part our Song of the Day podcast subscription. This podcast features exclusive KEXP in-studio performances, unreleased songs, and recordings from independent artists that our DJs think you should hear. This week, we are featuring Christmas-themed songs selected by Brian Foss, host of Sonic Reducer, KEXP's punk show. Brian has been doing a punk rock Christmas special every year since 2004, and has been a Christmas day on air DJ since 2012. No standards are played, only original songs, most with a humorous bent.

Brian's pick for today is "Christmas Daze", a 2012 single by Danish duo Glow Kit, released on Kanel Records.

Glow Kit - Christmas Daze (MP3)Says Brian...

Glow Kit are from Denmark and have been making music for close to 10 years. I really do not know that much about them, but I really love this song. I first heard it a couple of years ago and the melody remains stuck in my head in a very pleasant way. "This time of year brings the worse out in you" / "Christmas Daze, I can't keep up with the pace" - I am a sucker for dark lyrics sung in a sunny manner.

Find out more about Glow Kit on their Facebook page. They're currently working on their sophomore album, Pick Your Fights, which should be ready for release in the near future. For now, stay in a Christmas Daze:
