Spreading joy via music, and a cracking display of Christmas jumpers, Kids in Glass Houses 'Secret Santa's bell ridden melody manages to rouse festive spirit from even scrooges like myself. One listen and this jovial track will be firmly stuck in your noggin for..... well, hopefully the entire Xmas holiday!

So get your pals round, the mulled wine cooking and share those secretive gifts to this soundtrack courtesy of these Welsh wonders....

Tickets to their annual Christmas party show at the Clwb Ifor Bach in Cardiff on the 20th have already sold, but they have added an extra show on the 22nd of December so buy now to ensure you get to witness their festive treat live. 

"While we were demo-ing for our next album, Iain emailed over this idea that he'd "quickly" knocked together at home for a bit of fun. We've always talked about doing a Christmas track for a laugh and in the vein of all those classics and this song has every bell, glock and Christmas cliche we could muster. 

One morning I was really hungover and pressed record on my laptop and the words and melody fell out in one take. It basically describes the slightly more "adult" side of the festive season - the office parties and the like. It's all very tongue in cheek and camp, but I think we did the tradition some justice! 

It's a bit Slade, a bit Wizard, a bit Mariah, and the alcohol in my system was a bit Shane MacGowan. I'm actually really proud of it!" - Aled
