Erasure - Snowglobe

Erasure - Snowglobe
I know what you’re thinking - no, not another band making a Christmas album! Gladly  however, Snowglobe isn’t your typical cheesy festive album, It’s different, unique and actually rather good.

Full of signature Vince Clark synth melodies, there’s a whole lot to like about Snowglobe. Most of the tracks are original compositions by Clark and Bell, taking heed not to go over the top with seasonal cliches (thankfully there’s hardly the sound of a sleigh bell). Instead we’re treated to beautiful tracks including the traditional meets modern day technology stylings of ‘Gaudete’ (Imagine early Human League singing in Latin). One of my favourites on the album, I’d definitely have this on whilst I was decorating the tree. Of course there’s a helping of old classics including ‘Silent night’, with Bell’s echoed and haunting vocals providing the basis for this gorgeous rendition. It’s enough to give you chills...in a good way.


Although some tracks sound slightly 90’s-esque (heavy drum machines on songs such as ‘Make it wonderful’), this is a lot of fun and one of the better Christmas albums to grace my ears over the decade. If you’re looking for something different this December (or if you fancy grooving along to some classic dance) then shake it up with Snowglobe.
