If you’re looking for a creepy Christmas lullaby this holiday season, look no further than The Golden Filter’s “White Nights.”

Originally performed by Psychic TV in 1983, “White Nights” is actually a really cool song and TGF does a great job of making it both eerie and somehow upbeat. It’s playful at times; the lightly jingling bells that narrate the simple melody work perfectly with singer Penelope Trappes’ sonorous harmonies. The instruments are minimal but they all work. After a few times, it’s actually not creepy at all.

The Golden Filter, the duo of Trappes and Stephen Hindman, dropped their debut full-length last April called Voluspa on Brille.
