FFS Advent Calendar Door 17 | The Leisure Society – Christmas Mistakes

The Leisure Society squeezed the recording of this track – for our 2011 Christmas album – in between touring cathedrals with Laura Marling and their own European tour, pulling all-nighters to get it finished. But faced with time pressure they certainly didn’t do things by halves. When I asked Nick how the track was coming along he said “It’s fine. We’ve just got to get a harp player and brass section in.” And that’s on top of the strings and woodwind that come as standard with the band.
