HIP Video Promo is welcoming the seasonal cheer from Polyphonic Spree’s album Holidaydream, a great gift and stocking stuffer! This choral symphonic rock band from Dallas, Texas relies on a variety of vocal and instrumental color by featuring a choir, flute, trumpet, trombone, and other various instruments. The lead vocals of Tim DeLaughter introduces the warm undertones of what the upcoming holiday season has to offer in this exciting new clip “Silver Bells (Reprise).”
Polyphonic Spree formed in 2000 as a collaboration of thirteen musicians, exciting music fans from all over the nation. With four studio albums, three EPs, and countless singles, the band has had their eccentric music featured on various film soundtracks including Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Mozart and the Whale, and Keeping Up with the Steins. Over twenty musicians have collaborated with Polyphonic Spree over the years, adding heightened vibrations and whimsical notes to the eclectic sounds of this coming-of-age band. The release of their first ever holiday album is set to fuel the fire on the Yule log for the upcoming season, and the renditions of holiday songs that Polyphonic Spree has crafted so well will surely bring timeless and classic holiday cheer.
Always one to go above and beyond for their audiences, “Silver Bells (Reprise)” is just one of several upcoming video clips from Holidaydream and Polyphonic Spree presents the vision of holiday cheer in the warmest welcoming fashion. Lead singer DeLaughter is seen whimsically dancing around throughout Santa’s workshop where Holidaydream LP records are being made (which is actually a real pressing plant in Dallas). The classic approach to the holiday season makes this video seem like it’s from another time, promoting the original holiday fashion. Dressed in a wardrobe straight out of A Christmas Carol, DeLaughter merrily excites Santa’s helpers who are diligently getting ready for the holiday season by packaging copies of Holidaydream for all the good boys and girls. Giving the gift of vinyl is only appropriate from an artist like DeLaughter and his admitted passion for all things 180 gram. This wonderful rendition of “Silver Bells (Reprise)” includes rock/operatic elements that have been intertwined with modern indie flavors. Listening to “Silver Bells (Reprise)” excites the warm holiday cheer that is almost ready to burst throughout the scenes of the clip.
Polyphonic Spree’s ability to capture the likes of thousands of fans has proven to be successful over the years, and their upcoming holiday album is just another taste of what this band has to offer. Holidaydream contains wonderful renditions of our favorite classic holiday songs, and what better way than music is there to spread some holiday cheer around?
