So it’s christmas time again and we have once again recorded a christmas song for the annual Hometapes holiday compilation. This year we decided to write a new song instead of covering an old one like we have done before.
Niklas found an old christmas poem in swedish by Zacharias Topelius and we wrote a new song from the first verse of that. It’s called “Give Me No Splendour, Gold, or Pomp”. This is the first time we have recorded a song in swedish which is Niklas mother tounge.
You can download the compilation for free but if you like you can enter any amount and give to this year’s charitable organization, Megabolt, an independent organization that specializes in art projects and workshops for kids.
