Following a year that’s seen his band grow from strength to strength and become one of the most hotly tipped pop-punk acts in the UK, Decade front man Alex Sears is showing no signs of slowing down his prolific creative output by closing 2012 with a free download of Paul McCartney’s ‘Simply Having A Wonderful Christmastime’ accompanied by a homemade video featuring a nostalgic selection of the best in retro Christmas TV ads!

Keeping all the synthy-tweeness of the original and giving it his own twist with his signature vocals and overdriven guitars, this cover is guaranteed to get you in the festive pop punk spirit this season. Released under the front man’s alias Sophomore, through which he’s already released a free 3 track EP and cover of Lana Del Rey’s Blue Jeans (all still available on the bandcamp here: http://sophomoreuk.bandcamp.com/ ), the material sees a slight departure from the regular Decade fare and leaves him free to explore his songwriting and creative flair.
