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….

“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
