Multi-instrumentalist Walter Martin (of The Walkmen
) has tried his hand at composing a Christmas ditty. The song features dainty pop and jazz singerKat Edmonson
, and what starts as a charming xylophone accompanied love song morphs into a delightfully puckish back and forth between the two. It throws back to vintage holiday TV specials, and country music duets, with light spirited banter laced between the verses and the catchy chorus. The crowning moment of "aw, it's Christmas" is the final farewells of a simple sweet "Merry Christmas Kat," and "Merry Christmas Walt," and suddenly stockings are hung, a fireplace is lit, and I can smell the egg nog.
The lyric video, crafted and directed by La Moutique
, is just as skillfully quaint as the song. Popsicle sticks and other craft supplies make up the cast of this holiday colored stop motion short. Martin and Edmonson's characters are even represented by darling little figurines. Watch it below:
