But now we’re having to eat our words, as Erasure have only gone and released a downright amazing non-Christmas Christmas album. What does that mean? Well it feels seasonal, but not in the cheap/tacky Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree way. At points Snow Globe feels bleak, melancholic, and packed with frothy winter synths – it’s all very December, and very Erasure.
So excuse the horrendous artwork and give the impressive Snow Globe a little spin below – or if you’re a Christmas-album-a-phobic just skip to the original tracks. Hopefully we’ll still be listening come January.
Snow Globe is available to buy on the 11th of November.
