Sweet Bells 03:08


We've always loved reimagining traditional Christmas songs and putting our own mellow twist on them, and we've gathered all the ones we've released so far in one convenient place for you to listen to and download.

Every one of these tracks is a happy memory. They've always been conceived, arranged and recorded (usually in Ben's spare room) at great haste in the final days before Christmas - but it's always been a wonderful experience watching a handful of loosely organised ideas turn so quickly into something magical. We really hope they bring you a bit of joy!

Over the years we've been blown away by the love one particular blog has shown for these recordings - so even though there's nothing new for 2017 (but we promise there will be next year!) we'd like to dedicate this collection to the wonderful Stubby's House Of Christmas. Thanks for the love!

Track 1 composed and Tracks 2-5 arranged by Captives On The Carousel (Sarah Morrey & Ben Eckersley)
All tracks recorded and mixed (with a little extra arrangement and additional sleigh bells here and there) by Nicholas Alexander at Sounds Like Screaming

Captives On The Carousel Sheffield, UK

Captives on the Carousel are Sarah Morrey and Ben Eckersley.

They play folk originals on cello and guitar, telling stories of enchantment and dark goings on...

Sarah's poetic lyrics combined with Ben's haunting strings draw you into a world of mystery and magic.

"A more charming duo purveying mysterious, spine-tingly pop you're unlikely to find this side of Narnia."

- Nation Sheffield
