Leave It To the xx To Make ‘Last Christmas’ More Of A Bummer

One of the most synthtastic, falsetto-packed Christmas songs of all times got a makeup from another UK duo who are also fans of high pitches and synths, but for a completely different result. Wham!’s catchy ditty about holiday heartbreak, “Last Christmas,” got a reimagining from The xx during their session on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge, and made it, well, sound like The xx. That is to say, the gloomy, contemplative music fits the message of longing rather well. Anyway, have a listen below, via the band’s SoundCloud.
