Trentemøller – On A Cold Christmas Night (2017)

Merry Christmas everyone! It’s been fun to share some of my songs with you for the last 24 days. The 24th in every “Julekalender” (as we call it in Denmark) is always something special, a surprise. So here is a new little Christmas tune from me to all of you! Originally I only did 16 bars of the music for the documentary about me, but I kept working on the music and in the last few weeks I made it into a little song for you guys to enjoy this Christmas Day! All the best wishes to you all and thanks for the support, Trentemøller.

Lydmor – Helium High (2017)

All filming, editing and concept by Jenny Rossander and Liv Rossander.

“I had a very clear visual image of Helium High in mind when I made it. And since I knew that a lot of the shots would be quite intimate, I decided against doing it with a big crew and pro cameras. The whole video is shot and edited in one long night with my close friend Liv, in a small one room apartment in Copenhagen. We edited it straight after and I love the way you feel the energy of that whole night in the footage. We were two ladies, trying something we’d never tried before, drinking red wine, experimenting, cursing, laughing and urging each other on as the hours passed. It might be because of this that it has become one of my favorite videos of any I’ve ever done.”

Marching Church – Christmas on Earth (2017)

““Christmas On Earth” is a carol about parental kidnapping. Offering no background story to clarify the motives, we journey through the racing mind of a father in the midst of the disquieting act of having abducted his own children.

Draped in the melancholic backdrop of December, “Christmas On Earth” is an ode and a contribution to the great tradition of Christmas song. Bereft of sarcasm, we shine an adult and intricate light on the sad beauty which stands as the natural backside to the sometimes one-dimensional notions of joy integrated into the season.

Embracing the trivial and banal customs that go with its territory, this is a eulogy to the benevolence of Christmastime. Now deck the halls with boughs of holly!”

-Elias Bender Rønnenfelt

Lyrics:
It’s the 23rd day of December
The kids are lying in the back
Sleep has wrapped around them
They don’t know where they’re at
I believe in gift giving
We gave the utmost of all
I’ve commit my crimes and I did the time
Now I’m taking back it all

It’s cold outside
and the passing by gas stations light up the night

And it’s Christmas on earth
It’s Christmas on earth
It’s Christmas on earth
Yeah, it’s Christmas on earth
It’s Christmas, it’s Christmas, it’s Christmas on earth
Lost custody to the bitch
I deserve to see my kids

Soon they’ll send out a search team
And I know all hell awaits
She’s worried sick, of course she is
But I had to see them on Christmas day
As all the love that never came my way
And the triumphs that weren’t to be
By the time their presents are unwrapped
They’ll come knocking, looking for me

It’s cold outside
and the passing by gas stations light up the night

And it’s Christmas on earth
It’s Christmas on earth
It’s Christmas on earth
Yes, it’s Christmas on earth
It’s Christmas, it’s Christmas, it’s Christmas on earth
Paid alimony, that I did
I deserve to see my kids

And it’s Christmas on earth
It’s Christmas on earth
It’s Christmas on earth
Yeah, it’s Christmas on earth
It’s Christmas, it’s Christmas, it’s Christmas on earth
Lost custody to the bitch
I deserve to see my kids
