On the sixteenth day of highlighting lesser known Christmas songs (or versions of classics I gravitate to each year), it was suggested I check out “His Favorite Christmas Story” by Capital Lights. The song is a cut from the 2008 Tooth & Nail label compilation “X Christmas”. After one listen, I definitely liked the pace and the “story” within the song. Vocals remind me a lot of another group I’ve always liked…Hawk Nelson, who happen to be on the same label at the time. The most interesting thing I discovered during my research is that CL began their career as a SCREAMO band..yeah, look it up.
Capital Lights formed in 2002 as afterEIGHT (the SCREAMO period), but swapped monikers to CL and musical styles in 2008 after signing with Tooth & Nail Records. They’ve release five albums/EPs and nine singles, going on an indefinite hiatus as a group in 2012.
Capital Lights’ most recent release is “Rhythm ‘N’ Moves” from 2012.
If you’d like to listen to the playlist as it’s created this month, preview the tracks and then log into Spotify to listen!
