Meredith Bites the Earth is from Merry Christmas’ upcoming debut album, The Night The Night Fell which will be out this August. It promises to be a charmingly upbeat affair, judging by this delightful and eccentric song.

The band call themselves a ‘ten legged festive mathy-folk wonder tank,’ and that’s a fairly accurate summation of their sound. Think Arcade Fire, The Pastels, and Of Monsters and Men having a jamming session to Adventure Time and you’ll get the gist of what’s going on here. An epic story told in a very personal style, it’s a charming and catchy and a barrel of fun.

According to the band, the song is about “A girl trapped in a coma realizes she needs to wake up and takes down a mighty foe—Meredith—to earn her escape.”

Meredith Bites The Earth is out now with news on how to stream the song available on the band’s Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages.

The Night The Night Fell is out on the 1st of August, 2020, and can be pre-ordered on Bandcamp.
