Charles Cave of White Lies releases Christmas single

With an impact date of December 16th, and released digitally through AWAL (Kobalt), London singer Charles Cave (bass player and songwriter of White Lies) previews new video for his Christmas song This Fucking Time of Year, a seasonally melancholic, yet uplifting 80Christmas song.

The song was written produced and mixed by Cave from his North London home originally as part of several one-off releases, all received with acclaim (Q Track Of The Day, Reason To Drive’ ‘Your Song On The Radio’ which premiered on Noisey and ‘Too Much’ which premiered on Clash..) The new video is taken from a found home-movie showing a Christmas in America when a storm hit. Cave says of the song and video 

“I think it is every musicians duty to have a stab at a Christmas song, if only once. The festive season is full of all the emotions that fuel the best songwriting at all other times of the year, so digging into those complicated family dynamics, the bleak weather, the reflecting of the year gone by can be hugely inspiring for an emotive pop song. Christmas, visually, is all about decoration and sickly colours, so it felt appropriate to make a very rich sounding 80s ballad to reflect that. I hope this is a song that pulls on the heart-strings with a wry grin whilst simultaneously rising a fist to the air above ones mullet. For the video, I found some really moving home-footage of a Christmas in Pennsylvania that just instantly worked with the song. It barely needed editing. I got lucky!”
