New Jersey post-hardcore outfit Senses Fail have shared a duo of Christmas covers, ‘I Wish It Was Christmas Today’ (by Julian Casablancas) and ‘¿Dónde Está Santa Claus?’.
The two covers come together as a dual bundle holiday release which has been titled as ‘Christmas Has Been Canceled Due To A Lack Of Hustle’.
Vocalist Buddy Nielsen had this to say on the festive tracks.
“My step father have been telling me for 20 years that the only way to make it in the music industry is to do Christmas covers. He would point out Paul McCartney, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra and WHAM as prime examples of musicians who did them right. He wasn’t wrong but I wasn’t in any rush. Christmas songs are best sung in July and when it comes time for them, I’m usually burnt out, however, this year, there wasn’t much to sing about or celebrate so I reserved my carols for these songs. I chose the two greatest Christmas songs that few know and even fewer cover. I was once told that if you build it they will come, I have built it and I hope you come. Happy Holidays and fuck 2020.”
