Holiday Gift from Venera 4: Masked Dance.

Venera 4 of Paris, France is a favorite project of When the Sun Hits. (We even made their song "Haunted Summer" our "Top Track of 2013.") The band likes to give their fans a gift every year when the holidays roll around. In December 2013 they posted a whole album of exquisitely hushed and intimate reworkings of their songs called Winter Sessions (no longer free, but still a pretty sweet deal at €6). Last December it was a song called "Velveteen," an exclusive extra from the sessions for Venera 4's debut full-length Eidôlon. And this year, it's a fine single called "Masked Dance," which will be available as a name-your-price (free if you so choose) Bandcamp download through December 25th.
