about

Merry Christmas! This year, we’ve recorded another four traditional Christmas songs with new arrangements, plus our own original song “December Nights”! We took a break from our recent electronic stylings and focussed on playing real drums, guitars, bass, keyboards and layering up some lush harmonies. We hope you enjoy it, and have a great holiday season!

Laura Scarlett and David Disher create lush, genre-bending records. Disher’s layered arrangements and production merge styles from the 60’s through the 80’s. Scarlett’s vocals add a haunting overtone to the music. Their recordings feature new arrangements of old pop songs, though the duo’s original songwriting has drifted into recent releases. ... more

Track Name: God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
God rest ye merry, gentlemen
Let nothing you dismay
Remember, Christ, our Saviour
Was born on Christmas day
To save us all from Satan's power
When we were gone astray
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

From God our Heavenly Father
A blessed Angel came;
And unto certain Shepherds
Brought tidings of the same:
How that in Bethlehem was born
The Son of God by Name.
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

"Fear not then," said the Angel,
"Let nothing you affright,
This day is born a Saviour
Of a pure Virgin bright,
To free all those who trust in Him
From Satan's power and might."
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

Now to the Lord sing praises,
All you within this place,
And with true love and brotherhood
Each other now embrace;
This holy tide of Christmas
All other doth deface.
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

God rest ye merry gentlemen
O tidings of comfort and joy
Track Name: Greensleeves
Alas, my love, you do me wrong,
To cast me off discourteously.
For I have loved you well and long,
Delighting in your company.

Chorus:
Greensleeves was all my joy
Greensleeves was my delight,
Greensleeves was my heart of gold,
And who but my lady greensleeves.

I have been ready at your hand,
To grant whatever you would crave,
I have both wagered life and land,
Your love and good-will for to have.

(Chorus)

Ah, Greensleeves, now farewell, adieu,
To God I pray to prosper thee,
For I am still thy lover true,
Come once again and love me.

(Chorus)
Track Name: O Come, O Come Emmanuel
O come, O come, Emmanuel
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, Thou Rod of Jesse, free
Thine own from Satan's tyranny
From depths of Hell Thy people save
And give them victory o'er the grave
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, Thou Day-Spring, come and cheer
Our spirits by Thine advent here
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night
And death's dark shadows put to flight.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.
Track Name: In the Bleak Midwinter
In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter, long ago.

Our God, heaven cannot hold Him, nor earth sustain;
Heaven and earth shall flee away when He comes to reign.
In the bleak midwinter a stable place sufficed
The Lord God Almighty, Jesus Christ.

Angels and archangels may have gathered there,
Cherubim and seraphim thronged the air;
But His mother only, in her maiden bliss,
Worshipped the beloved with a kiss.

What can I give Him, poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
Yet what I can I give Him: give my heart.

In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter, long ago.
Track Name: December Nights
The falling of the snow
the stillness of the air
on December nights
they will always remind me of you
the feeling hasn't died
it is always inside us
just buried in snow

Chorus:
I wanna be with you on Christmas Eve
I wanna decorate our little tree
December nights are so long
I wanna sing Christmas songs with you and
I wanna be with you on Christmas Eve

The frost upon the windows
the glistening of snowflakes
on December nights
they will always remind me of you
how we never made the time
for the spirit to find us
we just stayed awake

(Chorus)

Are you still awake like I?
Looking at the snow outside?
Every day we lost some light
I hope you're staying warm tonight

Now the sky is getting bright
with glowing rays of morning light
the moon is fading out of sight
so I bid the night goodbye
I wanna be with you on cold December nights
