This one completely escaped us in the blur of holiday scrambling, but Philly rockers Amanda X released a sweet new song on Christmas day.

“New Year,” which you can listen to below, is a quick and drum-free tune reminiscent of The Softies and Belle & Sebastian. Over the course of a minute and 20, Cat Park and Kat Bean harmonize and deliver introverted contemplations like “sleeping until noon on a holiday is nice.” Totally agree with them there.

Listen to “New Year” below. The band’s next Philly gig is next Saturday, January 16th, with Kal Marks, Psychic Teens and Girl Dog; more information at Facebook.
