Steel City heart-stealers THE CROOKES are maintaining their fine tradition of Christmas carousing by rush-releasing a brand new yuletide anthem, ‘You’re Just Like Christmas’, on fierce panda on December 1st. Fittingly, as this comes not but a week after the release of their slow-burning ‘Howl’ single, ‘You’re Just Like Christmas’ starts with a howl and a yowl and a great big blockbusting riff before skidding across the indieglam ice with a sleigh bell rhythm and a Slade-slapping sensibility.

They’ve been here before, of course. Barely a snowy year goes by without the Sheffield gigaholics working through some 12 Days Of Crookesmas countdown or mulling over a tune like 2010’s ‘It’s Just Not Christmas Without You’. Chrimbo fits their classic new pop style like a lovely slender leather glove, just as they instinctively know how to write songs which befit the rosy-cheeked retromantic spirit of the season. Or as they put it so succinctly themselves: “Thought I was done with nostalgia, said it’s a thing of the past / But you’re just like Christmas, you’re just like Christmastime to me…”

‘You’re Just Like Christmas’ puts the seal on yet another hectic year in the world of The Crookes, one which saw them release three singles and tour their rocks off in hot pursuit of their rambunctious springtime ‘Soapbox’ album – their third on fierce panda in four frantic years. Their fearsome work ethic witnessed three US visits in 2014, taking in SXSW and CMJ, while their latest touring spin around the UK ended in Derby – quite literally – the night before ‘You’re Just Like Christmas’.

WATCH THE VIDEO HERE:

THE CROOKES consist of George Waite (vocals / bass), Daniel Hopewell (guitar), Tom Dakin (guitar) and Russell Bates (drums). They live in Sheffield, and really hope not to be lonely this Christmas.
