A new music guide to Christmas: Jeffe

As we root through our cupboards to find scarves, coats and every layer possible for the next few months, summer and festivals may be the last things on our minds. But, with the new year so close, here at Gigslutz, we want to get ourselves ahead of the game and get the lowdown what to get excited about in 2019.

As the festival to kick off the summer season and the home of new music, Live At Leeds are lending us a hand. Over the next few weeks in the run-up to Christmas, we’ll be introducing ourselves to the emerging talent on their line-up with festive playlists, what tracks make them resemble Scrooge, and their tips for the big day.

Following on from Malena Zavala, Jeffe is the second artist to dive into the Christmas festivities with us. The Aussie’s electro-pop tracks are full of dancefloor beats and silky vocals, but also with have taint of moodiness that can’t help but draw you in. She’s one to turn on when you just need to put in your earphones and shut out the world.

You can catch Jeffe at Live At Leeds 2019. Tickets are available HERE.

Jeffe’s Christmas Survival Guide


Top three tips to make the most out of Christmas

  1. Stay as far away from the Boxing Day sales as possible
  2. Bring extra sunscreen if you plan on spending the day at the beach
  3. Make sure you pre-buy enough booze and don’t get stuck on Christmas Day when all the bottle-o’s are closed

Least favourite Christmas song

My least favourite Christmas tune would probably have to be the classic ‘Jingle Bells’. I just find it super irritating.

Malena’s Christmas Playlist

Christmas for me is all about family. All of these songs remind me of my family in one way or another. I’ve spent a few Christmases away from home so if I listen to any of these songs around that time it will make me feel like I’m with them in spirit.
