As they are accustomed, Pentatonix‘s tight-knit harmonies and energetic arrangement come front and center in their latest creation: a snappy, tropical version of Fleet Foxes‘ “White Winter Hymnal.” Lifted from their just-released That’s Christmas To Me EP, the group keeps things rather simple, offering up a heart-pounding performance.

 

Last month, PTX also released another non-holiday set, PTX: Vol. III, featuring such covers as Ariana Grande‘s “Problem” and Clean Bandit‘s “Rather Be.” On the reasoning behind smartly releasing EPs, band mate Kevin Olusola recently chatted with Popdust, “EPs are a way to get music out quickly and show people what you’re thinking about in your mind at that moment in life. We want to do an LP in the future, but EPs are good a way to connect with fans. People sometimes don’t care necessarily about ‘oh, when are they gonna release a full length album’; sometimes they are like ‘I just want to hear new music from a band I really like.’ Fans are what we are thinking about. It’s what we love. EPs have been very, very fun. They’ve also been a great way to experiment and find out how we want to continuously grow and develop.”
