Having Grandma Here For Christmas is another box-ticking exercise hilariously executed by Subwoolfer.
Who’s to say what a Christmas song actually is? Sixty years ago it was something completely different to the commercialised pop music that drives them all now. Shove some sleigh bells in and you’re halfway there. Subwoolfer have ticked that box.
After dropping the conspicuous grandma references on Howling and Melocoton, they’re back, if it wasn’t obvious enough already. Keith and Jim want to eat grandma for Christmas. Because why not? They sing about getting a bigger oven and using a bathtub as a baking tray. Again, why not?
There’s a chorus of kind kids’ voices that make the track more recognisable and acceptable as a Christmas song. It’s not Subwoolfer’s top standard of pop or mild EDM music, but their recent bar was set high.
Having Grandma Here For Christmas is no Do They Know It’s Christmas? but it isn’t meant to be. This is Subwoolfer. Take anything with a fistful of salt.
