The Polyphonic Spree – “Silver Bells” (Featuring School of Seven Bells) [Video]
For us, it’s quite unusual to actually put School of Seven Bells‘ sounds into a Christmas Song. But given that I, personally, cannot discern where they actually fall into the ‘choral symphonic pop’ that they are so described as on their wiki page, it just seems perhaps the most odd that The Polyphonic Spree did a Christmas song themselves. Surely though, Claudia’s vocals are mixed in there somewhere.
The song itself speaks of typical holiday happenings, but sans the jingle and with a bit of grunge as the tracks main overtone in their reworked version of “Jingle Bells”. For you geeks, you’ll love the premise. It would actually make for quite a good sci-fi Christmas movie:
