"December Boy", is the first single to be taken from their fourth and final album “…Love You”, and the first on which Jenna Love (The Loves' J-Lo) takes lead vocals.

Recorded live at Soup Studios in London's glittering East End, it turns the chorus for "September Gurls" by Big Star into a Spector-esque girl group pop number, with help from Liz Hunt from The School and Emma Hall from Pocketbooks on backing vocals, as well as Rob Jones (AKA The Voluntary Butler Scheme) on organ. Real life violins also make an appearance.

Flip-side "Bubblegum" is equally upbeat, but with more of a 60s garage Nuggets feel.
