Join Los-Angeles band Leftover Cuties as they get into the holiday spirit with their brand-new EP, Christmas Time Is Here. This fun collection features Leftover Cuties’ spin on their hand-picked favorite holiday classics and is a perfect gift for everyone on your list. The EP begins with a signature cover of “Santa Baby”, with a coy vocal by the one and only
Shirli McAllen. The up-tempo revamp of the Christmas classic “Winter Wonderland” is a wild ride through snow-covered hills. “Christmas Time Is Here” will have you snuggling by the fire with your favorite someone. “Blue Christmas” is peppered with mariachi horns and timbalis, and nods to the band celebrating the holidays at home in Los Angeles.
Christmas Time Is Here is an appropriate end-of-year celebration for Leftover Cuties, who have enjoyed their best year to date. Even if you don’t know their name yet, you’ve almost certainly heard them in your own living room. Their original song “Game Called Life” has been the theme song for Showtime’s highly-acclaimed series “The Big C” for three seasons
running. Another original Leftover Cuties song, “Smile Big,” was featured in a Samsung Galaxy SIII ad that aired around the clock during the London Summer Olympics. And most recently, Hyundai tapped their version of “When You’re Smiling ” for a currently running worldwide campaign. No matter what the season or what continent you happen to live on,
Leftover Cuties are right there to play for you.
Paste Magazine raves, “The Leftover Cuties have added a breath of fresh air to L.A.’s music scene.” Influential Los Angeles radio station KCRW lauds the band’s “sultry crooning, tender melodies, and bittersweet lyrics,” and Examiner.com praises, “In a world where style is too often held in higher regard than talent, Leftover Cuties are the real deal.”
Leftover Cuties is currently in the studio working on their forthcoming album with producer/engineer Dave Way (Fiona Apple, Macy Gray, SherylCrow) which is set to be released in Spring 2013.
