Criminally underrated and lovable in equal quantities, The Maccabees proved that the ‘difficult second album’ really wasn’t that difficult when they followed their debut album ‘Colour It In’ with the phenomenal ‘Wall of Arms’. Taking a break from the recording of their third album, they’ve now gone and added a Christmas song to their ever growing arsenal. But not just any Christmas song, they’ve only gone and covered ‘Walking In The Air’! It would be incredibly cheesy if it wasn’t so bloody brilliant, magically haunting and remarkably moving. Mariah Carey eat your plastic heart out.
