Ditch Mud. Forget Slade. Elbow aside Kim Wilde. Have a bike theme in your Christmas music mix, with Nora and One Left.

‘All I want for Christmas is a red bicycle’

Nora and One Left is a Washington DC band, fronted by Nora Schlang, who likes cycle chic. And red bicycles.

‘Bicycle’ is the band’s latest album and contains a number of bike-themed tracks, including ‘Big Red Bicycle Christmas’, as boppy and as schwalmtzy as the usual Christmas fare, but with a bike in it.

Nora and One Left’s Bicycle album can be downloaded in a number of formats from the band’s website or from iTunes. The full album costs £7.99 with the Christmas single costing 79p.
