Pentatonix are ringing in the annual countdown to the Christmas season but with a sonic twist in their new “12 Days of Christmas” music video.
Starting midway on the sixth day of Christmas, the five golden singers in the acclaimed a cappella group — Scott Hoying, Mitch Grassi, Kirstin Maldonado, Kevin Olusola and Matt Sallee — deliver their verses with a wide range of genres, including hip-hop, electro-pop, island folk and more, predominantly backed by Olusola’s beatboxing.
“The PTX holiday cheer continues as we countdown to Christmas with our version of ’12 Days of Christmas,'” Pentatonix wrote on their social media yesterday. “We had fun putting our touch on this iconic Christmas song!”
Their funky-yet-festive rendition of “12 Days of Christmas” is the first song on their sixth holiday set We Need a Little Christmas, which peaked at No. 4 on Billboard‘s Top Holiday Albums chart (dated Nov. 28).
The five-piece group also released holiday visuals for “Thank You” and “Amazing Grace (My Chains are Gone)” off the Christmas album.
