VH1 You Oughta Know alum Dawes got into the festive mood recently, covering “Christmas Time Is Here” for The A.V Club. And when we say festive mood, the boys went all out, complete with Santa hats, tinsel and stars. Dawes’ rendition of the Christmas classic hold true to Vince Guaraldi‘s original, with only hints of the L.A sunset folk sound Dawes are known for peeking at the edges. We loved Dawes’ version, and the chilled out, melodic tune matched their vibe perfectly — but wouldn’t have been upset if the boys infused it with some more laid back, surfer beach vibes either.
