Off The Record – ALBUM FOCUS –  Christmas Drag, I DON’T KNOW HOW BUT THEY FOUND ME

Have you ever wanted To listen to a new band or musician and not sure where to start? Well, instead of listening to their commercial music, why not start with something off the album first!  Today we look at the Christmas EP released by I Don’t Know How But They Found Me – Christmas Drag 

Christmas Drag

The song opens up with a little message wishing listeners a merry Christmas with a hopeful theme which then turns into a guitar rift that is then welcomed with Christmas bells and a piano that brings festive joy. The vocals are a lot lower on this track which make it have a hint of Nirvana to it only in the vocal part the rest of the song is very I Don’t Know How. The star of this song is the piano melodies throughout it brings a sense of magic to the song whilst also making it a very unique song.

Merry Christmas Everybody

This is a cover of the really popular and legendary Christmas song. It may be a Christmas classic but I Don’t Know How have managed to put their unique twist on it and have made it sound like a completely different song. Just an emphasis on piano melodies and plucking of strings on instruments have created a really fun and very listenable version of this song refreshing it on the way.

Oh Noel

The last song on the EP is again solidly focused on the piano and it creates a really beautiful slow track to end it. The vocals are slightly echoed and the piano is slightly sustained to create this feeling of an Ole timye bar. A very pretty song and quite festive as well.
