Listen to the Most Depressing Christmas Song of All Time


Super Furry Animals frontman Gruff Rhys clearly has a chip on his shoulder about the holiday season. He’s releasing his Atheist Xmas EP on December 19, featuring three tracks that you certainly won’t find in your family’s well-thumbed book of sing-along standards: “Post Apocalypse Christmas,” “At the End of the Line,” and “Slashed Wrists This Christmas.” The latter is now available for streaming, which means we can confirm that it is, in fact, about a seasonal suicide attempt (and bipolar disorder!). For non-believers and those for whom “holiday cheer” is an oxymoron, it’s an enjoyably dark antidote to the turkey and tinsel.
