Donegal’s all sister band Screaming Orphans release their new Christmas single, ‘Song We Used To Sin’g, available for purchase on Screaming Orphans’ website, iTunes, Spotify, Amazon Music and other digital platforms on December 11, 2020.
This is the Screaming Orphans first writing collaboration with renowned songwriter John Spillane. The new Christmas single is a beautifully crafted poignant track perfect for the current Christmas – missing someone and thinking of the past good times spent together
The theme of the song is charmingly captured in the accompanying video featuring photos and videos submitted by the band’s fans and friends reflecting on memories of times spent together.
Screaming Orphans, a genre-breaking, chart topping all sister band, are known worldwide for their award-winning sound, combining their original pop songs with a unique take on traditional Irish music.
