Ballboy "Merry Christmas to the Drunks, Merry Christmas to the Lovers"
Published Nov 30, 2015As previously reported, prolific Vancouver indie label Kingfisher Bluez is gearing up for its eighth annual Christmas party on December 18. As has become the tradition, the show's $10 entry fee includes a free 7-inch single, and now we've got a stream of the full thing.
The single is a rerelease of "Merry Christmas to the Drunks, Merry Christmas to the Lovers," a 2013 tune from Edinburgh indie pop mainstays Ballboy. The song's a warm, cozy little indie tune built on acoustic guitars, sparse percussion and frontman Gordon McIntyre's wonderful Scottish brogue.
Listen to "Merry Christmas to the Drunks, Merry Christmas to the Lovers" below. If you happen to be in Vancouver on December 18, you can pick up a free copy of the 7-inch at the show. All proceeds from the show will go to 1-800-SUICIDE and Crisis Centre BC.
