Gabriella Cilmi: 'Warm This Winter'

By
Gabriella Cilmi: 'Warm This Winter'
Released on Monday, Dec 15 2008

Gabriella Cilmi's had quite a year, cracking the top ten with her debut album, touring with James Blunt and Sugababes and sweeping the board at the Australian Record Industry Awards. Trouble is, most record buyers still only know her for one song, the fairly inescapable 'Sweet About Me'.

'Warm This Winter', a cover of a relatively obscure Connie Francis single, won't give her that all-important follow-up smash, but its spot on the Co-op ad should help it along nicely. Xenomania's production tips its cap towards the classic Phil Spector Christmas album, while Cilmi's throaty vocals capture the festive cheer in the lyrics beautifully. The result? A yuletide pop confection that's frothier than a well-whisked hot chocolate.
