If there’s any such thing as a not-great Christmas-themed synthpop song, I haven’t heard it. For whatever reason, Christmas and synthpop bring out the bittersweet best in each other. Dum Dum Girls aren’t usually a synthpop band, but they try the sound out on “On Christmas,” their contribution to Converse’s holiday-themed Noise To The World 2 compilation. It’s a lovely, shimmering seasonal nugget produced by Kurt Feldman of Ice Choir and you can hear it below.
Noise To The World 2 also features people like Deer Tick and IamSu!; check it out here.
