"One of the highlights of [Christmas Day in Australia] is the beautiful slide guitar track. ...reminiscent of classic artists like Johnny & Santo, and it plays along beautifully with the rhythm of the song." Kudos to Nick Harley for his exquisite dobro (not slide guitar) playing.
December 2020 - It’s that magical time of the year once again! Although they love Christmas just like we do over there in Australia, the landscape is quite different. Forget snowy tops and winter sweaters, and welcome sunny days and walks along the beautiful Pacific shores. Blind Uncle Harry recently came up with a brand new single that highlights the Aussie Christmas spirit in style!
The song also comes with a matching music video, which perfectly captures the unique feel of the song and style. The track kicks off with a didgeridoo drone, as well as some beautiful percussion. However, the artist dives into a folky arrangement that reminds me of twee music, with some well-matched female vocal harmonies, and some bright acoustic guitars. One of the highlights of the songs is the beautiful slide guitar track. It has a very Hawaiian feel, reminiscent of classic artists like Johnny & Santo, and it plays along beautifully with the rhythm of the song.
