Single Review: SaidMike / It’ll Be Fine At Christmas Time

Saidmike (single side)Every year there is a raft of Christmas singles. Some are the dodgy re-releases of once great songs, some are rubbish blatent attempts at cashing in on the Christmas spirit.

However, one song has stuck out a bit for me this year. SaidMike bring a touch of pop-punk to idea of a Christmas song, and boasts the Pontypridd quartet’s first use of a vocal choir and those all important Christmas bells. However, unlike most songs released at this time of year, ‘It’ll Be Fine at Christmas Time’ stands tall as a great song in it’s own right and is a fitting way for the band to round off a great year. It won’t sound out of place in their traditional set, unlike some Christmas offerings by other (nameless) bands.
