WARM FOREVER: Christmas Classics from Candy Claws and Firebreather

All eight of our Christmas songs so far, in one shiny package under the tree! By the way, Firebreather is Kay's other band, written and produced by Ryan. It's a fun way for us to experiment with different styles and production. This album is extra special because it includes a remastered version of Peppermint Delight, which is the best song we've ever made.

"Peppermint Delight" by Firebreather


Happy Holidays!

Snow Bridge - Listen, Lyrics, Download

Thanks for a wonderful 2010, everyone! We left something under the tree just for you...

"Snow Bridge" by Candy Claws

Sing along with the words below!
Fire blaze, flashy glow
Bright window in the snow
Warm friend full of peppermint delight
The fireplace just for sweet dreams
Old songs with the sound
The carriage that flies in the night!

Frosted window bright
To see the Mouse King inside?
Melody for the tree lights I hold

See Red Bear in the green trees
Reindeer in the field
O bring me my Bow of Burning Gold!

Everybody knows
Red Moon on sparkle snow
So jungle, so melody, so right
For days and days and days
Small Deer won't run away
And over the Snow Bridge tonight

Summer days, a dream we had
One fairytale night
Morning shine, snowy white, winter cold

See Red Bear in the green trees
Reindeer in the field
O bring me my Bow of Burning Gold!

Here's free download...

Without giving too much away, here's some photos from the set...

Chris: "That's called a snare drum."
Sydney: "It sounds like snot."

Dallon: "This grim lighting is perfect for the funeral of the instruments."

Abigail: "My hands are so cold, I am the Ice Queen."

Sydney: "What's an Iron Curtain?"
Rachel: "I think it's a curtain that's been ironed too much..."

Bea: "Are you really ten feet tall?"

Katie: "CUT!"

Rachel: "I'm not gonna watch that youtube video, dude."

Abigail: "I buried the leaf. It's out of chloroplasts."
Dallon: "I gave it a rock for a headstone."

Bea: "Guess what a Rike is..."
Ryan: "A British rake?"
Bea: "A river + a lake."

Sydney: "We were in that big pile of blankets."
Ryan: "How did you breathe?"
Katie: "There were little holes."

Nika: "How long does it take to make a real movie? Think of staying in the same costume for four years..."

Abigail: "This is my forest bedroom, under those curved branches."
Ryan: "Did you sleep there last night?"
Abigail: "Yes."
