Bright Eyes Christmas Songs & Music

US indie rock band Bright Eyes produces an eclectic mix of classic rock, folk and electronica sounds. Their band line up is just as diverse, with a rotating line up featuring a who's who of the Omaha indie rock scene. So when the group complied a collection of Christmas hits, it was always going to be something more than the traditional sleigh bells and carolling choirs.

A Christmas Album

2002: A Christmas Album

In keeping with the Christmas spirit, Bright Eyes donated all proceeds of this little gem to the Nebraska AIDS Project. The album features ten of the most popular carols, before closing with an old-fashioned reading of The Night Before Christmas. Bright Eyes’ renditions of these favourites however are anything but traditional, featuring sparse harmonies, altered rhythms and some ultra-slow versions of usually upbeat songs. The result is plaintive and lovely, if lacking a little energy and sparkle. This indie album has found its way into mainstream pop culture on a few occasions too, with their cover of Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas appearing in the film Imaginary Heroes, whilst Blue Christmas featured in an episode of teen drama The O.C.
