YOU WRECKED MY CHRISTMAS/I WAS BORN ON CHRISTMAS DAY
SNOWFLAKES CHRISTMAS SINGLES
Christmassy in name only, these raucous tracks from the genre-permeable Glasgow trio exhibit two very different sides to their ever-changing sound.
bis had a sound that was completely their own, an aggressive yet poppy mix of punk, indie pop, riot grrrl, new wave and britpop. finally, they’ve added a Christmas single to their already extensive discography, a single that shows two completely different sides of the band. The A-side, the catchy Christmas anthem 'You Wrecked My Christmas' brings 'Social Dancing'-era Bis to mind, with punky guitars, uptempo drums, 80s synths and a chorus that refuses to leave your mind once you've heard it. On the B-side, they take Saint Etienne’s synthpop-influenced Christmas hit 'I Was Born On Christmas Day', strip it to the bones, and it ends up sounding like Bis' interpretation of a 21st Century krautrock Christmas song.
