Cover lovers: Listen to Charly Bliss cover ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’

Listen to Charly Bliss cover ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’

They’ve taken on Mariah Carey’s festive classic.

Not long after they rounded off their first-ever headline tour of the UK in support of debut album ‘Guppy’, Charly Bliss released a spooktacular video for ‘Scare U’ in time for Halloween. It had zombies in it!

Now they’re just in time for yet another holiday, delivering on to the world their cover of Mariah Carey’s all-time Christmas classic ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’. It strips back some of the pop production but in its place comes rollicking guitar riffs and drum licks that make it just as euphoric as the original. And yes, there’s jingle bells in there too!

The band told NPR: “Sam and Eva’s dad always hoped that Eva would be chosen to sing this song at a high school choir pageant so this has been a long time coming! It was a lot of fun covering what is probably the catchiest Christmas song of all time”.
