Biography

Santa Hates You is a German based band formed in autumn 2007.
Members and founders of the band are the musical icon Peter “PS” Spilles and the enigmatic italian vocalist/lyricist Jinxy. Legend has it that they first met at the Ohlsdorfer Cemetery in Hamburg, where it is said that they accidentally ‘scared the hell out of each other’. Apparently it was then that PS noticed Jinxy’s unusual voice, and, well, it seems safe to say that he was quite intrigued by what he heard.
After discovering their common passion for dark music, macabre arts and rebellious humor, the two became friends and soon decided to start a band together.

Santa Hates You’s music is straight forward dark-electro, with industrial traits and extremely danceable beats on one side, and catchy sequences as well as gothic and electro-punk elements on the other. While the band describes their sound as “juicy electronic-gothic-industrial”, many others have tried, in the course of the last years, to characterize the Santa Hates You - style.
‘A musical maelstrom’; ‘The perfect soundtrack to the Mad Hatter’s tea party’; ‘Bizarre and grotesque like some kind of sexy freak show’; ‘Always hard hitting but infectious as hell’, ‘Distasteful, wayward, mischievous, depraved, and dangerous for our youth’ are only some of the most colorful labeling attempts out there.
Santa Hates You’s powerful vocals are another unmistakable trait of the duo.
PS’s striking voice finds a worthy ally in Jinxy’s equally distinctive sultry-to-snarled vocal presence.
