The great Stubby (look who's BACK) tipped this one on the Falalala-forum (HERE). Valencia's an American poppunk band, who are part of a compilation with all original songs, out in December.
About this track, the band said: 'We wanted to fit into that tradition of great pop punk Christmas songs and also a dash of The Kinks thrown in for the lyrical snark. We really wanted a song that can highlight our distaste and struggle with the consumerism obsession that this holiday brings out in people. But, also somewhere in the back of our heads, maybe Christmas isn't so bad, we're all just looking to fill the void. The image of a Mall Santa eating Chick-Fil-A at the mall because he has nowhere to go just started us on such a fun path of weird riffs on old Christmas songs. You should see the lyrics on the cutting room floor."
