14.12.17 – Marching Church

The man who gave us the phrase ‘fist-fucked by destiny’ on his 2016 single Heart Of Life, Marching Church‘s Elias Bender Rønnenfelt (also the voice of ICEAGE) doesn’t lack for originality. And originality is what he has brought to his own take on the jazzy Christmas anthem, Christmas On Earth, a song about ‘parental kidnapping’. Christmas On Earth is the classic misery-soaked Christmas big-hitting emotional song, but written from the point of view of a father who’s kidnapped his children for the season. Which makes it an unsettling mix of sentimentality spiked through with lightning bolts of lyrical darkness. And Bender Rønnenfelt can really sing these days, which makes Christmas On Earth a captivating, and immensely unnerving, Xmas singalong.
