Christmas songs are a staple of the festive season, and the lovely gents in Shields have decided to cover one of the most popular; and boy have they done a good job. Paul McCartney’s 1979 Christmas classic, Wonderful Christmas Time is the song in question, all set to get you in the mood for Santa coming.

The alt-pop quintet had a grand year, and all of the joy and exuberance (and probably masking a fair bit of tiredness), come through, in a cover that stays true to the original, but is still full of Shields’ quirky, talented musicianship, combined with sincere and delicate vocal melodies.

This video is sure to wash away any cynicism your last minute Christmas shopping inspired in you, they’re even sporting a fine selection of Christmas jumpers, so pop yours on, grab a mulled wine, and get yourself well in the festive spirit.
