The Static Dive Presents Jazzy Indie Rendition of John Lennon’s Holiday Classic for a Season of Peace”


The Static Dive gives a bossa nova-infused indie-pop take of John Lennon’s eternal cry for peace as the Christmas season unfolds against the backdrop of wars worldwide. This adds a novel touch to the joyful atmosphere. This tune offers a soothing interpretation of a song that is just as important now as it was back then by combining relaxing vibes, a hint of melancholy, and a one-of-a-kind jazz combo arrangement.

Bob Smith, a musician and writer, operates under the artistic pseudonym The Static Dive, and he adds a plethora of experience to this endeavor. After performing as a solo artist and collaborating with other musicians for the better part of two decades, as well as touring the college circuit in the United States in the 1990s, Smith debuted The Static Dive in 2018, simultaneously launching a popular indie music blog with the same name.

Bob has previously paid tribute to the member of the Beatles whom he considers to be his favorite. Together with Los Angeles-based multi-genre producer Kilo House, Bob founded the record label House of Static Records in 2021. Earlier this year, The Static Dive released a psychedelic rock version of their song “Give Peace a Chance” on this label.

The Static Dive’s rendition of John Lennon’s holiday classic gives the holiday season its own unique flavor thanks to its bossa nova flair, indie-pop charm, and orchestration that incorporates jazz. The message of peace resounds anew as listeners go on a trip through the chill vibes and melancholy tones of this version, making it an appropriate addition to the festive soundtrack.
