I had never heard of the band Bensonwells prior to downloading their Christmas EP on Noisetrade. But when I heard the bridge on their version of “White Christmas” I knew it was a strong contender to make this year’s countdown. What can I say? I’m a sucker for lyrics about falling snow and redemption.
So dim down the lights, watch it all turn to white,
Snow erasing the wrongs that we’ve done.
Let it softly come down, let it cover the ground,
Redemption has now begun.
White Christmas – Bensonwells
