To take a traditional well known Christmas carol, covered countless times before and effortlessly put a fresh, quirky, beautiful new spin on it is no mean feat. Yet Jule Vera has managed to do just that, in the most elegant and uncomplicated fashion, whilst still managing to keep the true essence of the carol. Her minor version of ‘Deck the Halls’, simply put, is really rather special.
Caressed in angelically soft vocals, fused with folk, a dash of Billie Eilish and plucked with Jule’s signature ukulele, this is a cover more than worthy of your Christmas holiday playlists.
