Track Of The Day: Bubble & Squeak – ‘The Christmas Stick’

It seems Poppy Hankin has a knack for creating perfect festive ditties; following Girl Ray’s ‘(I Wish I Were Giving You A Gift) This Christmas’ last year, she has now teamed up with The Boy Least Likely To’s Jof Owen to treat our ears to a sparkling slacker pop masterpiece.

Depicting a chance encounter on a lonely winter’s night between two strangers whose eyes meet across a bustling broadway, ‘The Christmas Stick’ is filled with completely dreamy, twinkling melodies and an endearing, scuzzy charm. As luscious harmonies flow alongside the joyous sound of sleigh-bells and a slight whirr of wistful melancholy, it’s the perfect antidote to some of the usual festive drivel circulating at this time of year. An uplifting slice of shimmering garage-pop to accompany those hot toddies, mince pies and inescapable pre-Christmas anxiety.

Of the track, Hankin explains: 

Jof told me about the idea for the song one night in the pub, but all he had so far was the line “you’ve been hit, you’ve been hit, you’ve been hit by The Christmas Stick”. I remember singing an idea for it straight away and then we got together the next morning and wrote the rest of it. It ended up being a really sweet love song, which we didn’t expect it to be.”
