Norway seems to be churning out the top quality bleak winter anthems at an alarming rate this Christmas season. After Maria Mena’s ‘Home For Christmas’ comes this – ‘Christmas Card’ by Anine Stang. And we actually think that Anine’s is even better than Maria’s, the current number 1 single in Norway!
It’s haunting, it’s sad, it’s beautiful, it’s chilling. It’s perfect if you like your Christmas songs moody and wintery. The chorus has an epic, movie theme esque melody. And the whole thing is made even better by the moody and minimalist piano that plays throughout. It’s been in our head all day since we first heard it.
And if the video depresses you, fear not – all proceeds from sales of this single go towards the Red Cross and the work they do to help out those less fortunate around us at Christmas, as seen in the video.
