DZ Deathrays – Lonely This Christmas

A reasonably new edition from the Australian rad dudes DZ Deathrays, ‘Lonely This Christmas’ was recently released as part of a split 7” single with Pulled Apart By Horses through Too Pure Singles Club.  This is an updated take on the Mud classic. I’m sure they would have wanted to record it this way…In true Phil Spector style, there’s a great spoken word part toward the end of the track – A perfect staple of any Christmas song.

I’ve really gotten into DZ Deathrays this year, and their latest record is a total blast. It was great to see them announce this Christmas single split with Pulled Apart By Horses, and I’ve actually been listening to this every other day since it came out’ it’s such a top effort.
I got the chance to speak with DZ Deathrays a few months back, about the new record and breaking the UK. You can check that out by clicking here.



Merry Christmas Everybody’ by Pulled Apart By Horses appeared at Day Two of the 12 Days Of Alternative Christmas Songs countdown, and you can read all about their side of the split here!
