Former Razorlight drummer Andy Burrows and Editors frontman Tom Smith released their record Funny Looking Angels under the name Smith & Burrows. One of the best songs on the album is, When The Thames Froze .
Smith & Burrows gives us a wonderful Christmas Carol with a darker undertone. A song fit for the recent economic resessions.
Q Magazine described the song as ”a Christmas anthem for modern times”.
We have chosen two version, first the official video, and second, an acoustic live version (Smith & Burrows performing ‘When The Thames Froze’ at The Station Sessions as part of the Secret Season supporting Shelter):
