I’ve rounded up the best indie covers of Christmas songs to wack on the party playlist this festive season.

Blossoms – Wonderful Christmastime

Paul McCartney’s classic Christmas tune is reworked nicely by the Stockport lads. Their dreamy synth pop record Cool Like You lives on in this cover, a nice angle to take. This one sounds classic Christmas; bells jingling and lyrics sung like Blossoms are in a snowy, lamppost-lit street, late in a winter night. I can see myself dancing around the tree already.

Pale Waves – Last Christmas

Hands up if you want a Gothic Christmas. My hands up, yours should be too. Pale Waves slapped their black nail varnish and leather jackets onto the hands and shoulders of George Michael as they pulled off a remarkable cover of Last Christmas, a classic. Vocalist Heather Baron-Gracie whines the chorus characteristically, but it’s weirdly works. Granted, the song is darker, but it’s a welcome and fresh approach that you should throw on at the family Christmas drinks, just to spice things up.

Wolf Alice – Santa Baby

Blimey. No hiding here, this cover is beautiful. Ellie Rowsell serenades you softly as you borderline whispers the lyrics of Eartha Kitt into your ears, goosebumps a plenty. Dim the lights, pour yourself a wine and recline in your chair, as Wolf Alice take you further and further into the realm of relaxation. Step over Kylie and Bublé, this is the best cover around.
