Fresh of their last tour, the rag tag group of Vermonters, Chamberlin, is back with a new holiday single “In the Bleak Midwinter.” It’s a traditional Christmas hymn that keyboardist Eric Maier said was “arranged to reflect the classical, choral tradition with a modern, electronic edge,” a description that does the song way more justice than I could. Much like their song, “Sixty Days”, the song centers on extensive vocal harmonies backed by a simple grand piano.
It’s another tune to come out of their Goshen, VT cabin and I think the population of 200 well understands the reasoning behind this choice for a holiday cover. The forecast for the forseeable future is “snow on snow on snow”. If you like modern renditions to classic Christmas carols, you’ll love this song.
