(Holiday!) Video of the Moment #2241: The Crookes

Sheffield alt-pop quartet The Crookes have taken to the road for their English Christmas tour this week. In celebration of both the live shows and the approaching holidays, we chose today to feature the video for their new Christmas single ‘You Bring the Snow’. The Crookes have made a tradition of releasing festive tracks for the holiday season, including previous yuletide titles ‘You’re Just Like Christmas’ and ‘It’s Just Not Christmas Without You’.

The brightly synthetic musical setting of ‘You Bring the Snow’ belies a typically wistful set of lyrics, where songwriter Daniel Hopewell wishes aloud, via George Waite’s sentimental singing voice, for “one more Christmas like when we were young”. But on further consideration, the retro synth style of the instrumental arrangement fits perfectly with the nostalgia found in Hopewell’s lyrics and in director Jake McDonald’s video treatment. Filmed as a throwback-style home video, the new promo finds bandmates Waite, Hopewell, Tom Dakin and Adam Crofts celebrating the holiday together, each bringing his own particular form of festivity to the occasion.
