The Overtones are set to make everyone Smile this Christmas

Written byCAROLINE KAY

I LOVE a Christmas tune – but it has to be a good one. This EP comes complete with one of my Desert Island Disc choices (Smile), along with two festive tracks (Winter Wonderland and White Christmas). The key vocals on these tracks are the gorgeous and velvet-voiced baritone Lachie Chapman, along with lead singer Timmy Matley. Sales will raise funds for international charity Operation Smile, with 100 per cent of the net profits going to the organisation which is dedicated to providing free cleft lip and cleft palate surgeries in over 60 countries around the world. This cover of Smile is one of the better ones and brings a lump to my throat as it is sung with such finesse, with the two Christmas tracks then putting me in a party mood. An emotional rollercoaster and I couldn’t be happier. Brilliant boys, brilliant! You’ve made me smile this Christmas and Warner Bros Music certainly knew what they were doing when they signed the band all those years ago.
