Denmark's Surf School Dropouts Dream of California and "Another Christmas with You"

It's a relatively short hop from Sweden to Denmark, which brings us to the latest holiday offering from the Danish group Surf School Dropouts. Formed in 2008 by several friends who shared a love for the music of the Beach Boys, this four-member group relies largely on the internet to promote their growing collection of original material. In addition to the Beach Boys, they count Phil Spector as a key musical influence, noting
[h]armony-laden songs of sun, fun and love - with the occasional dash of melancholia and longing – seem to be what being a Surf School Dropout is all about so far.
Happily for us, they seem to be especially big on Christmas music, and they've just released their latest holiday single, "Another Christmas with You":

These guys aren't new to the holiday song racket, by any means. Last year, they released another Christmas single, which, like "Another Christmas with You," would have been a good fit on Phil Spector's A Christmas Gift for You, a holiday classic that was first released 50 years ago last month:

This band shows a lot of promise. Watch for their debut album, Summer Is a State of Mind, which drops December 28.
