Here is the first overview of Christmas 7" vinyl singles that so far have been released or announced in 2020!
We first start with the three Snowflakes Christmas Singles Club releases, that will officially be in the shops on December 4, 2020, but are already available for pre-order through the Big Cartel site of the label.
Jetstream Pony: Grief Of A (Frozen) Soldier / Hit The Snow
(Snowflakes Christmas Singles Club, Snowflake 24, The Netherlands, white vinyl, 45 rpm, small hole)
A-side 'Grief Of A (Frozen) Sailor' was written years ago on a winter's afternoon by guitarist Shaun Charman with his then eight year old daughter Nina, who originally sang the song. Jetstream Pony later played it at practices with lyrics tweaked by the band’s singer Beth Arzy, and now it finally finds a home on vinyl. Beth's vocals almost disappear in the storm of guitars in the chorus. On the B-side of their single they cover a track of the second album of San Francisco's The Aisler Set, 'Hit The Snow'. Jetstream Pony replace the keyboards of the original with guitars, adding a raw punky edge to the catchy indie pop winter song.
The single is still available for pre-order in many shops, but is sold out with the band and only available from Snowflakes by buying it as a set with the two other Snowflakes releases of this year.
