This little nugget of Swedish pop goodness popped into our inbox just yesterday – a new single and video from a duo called Rebecca & Fiona. Spookily, the girls’ names happen to be Rebecca and Fiona. What ARE the chances!? They’re both DJs, producers, music stars and television presenters in Sweden where their debut single ‘Luminary Ones’ set them on the path to superstardom last year. Second single ‘Bullets’ hit the top ten in their homeland earlier this year.
There’s something a little bit cool about ‘Hard’. It’s not your normal run-of-the-mill pop music. Kinda edgy, kinda Pet Shop Boys. There’s nary a vocal to be found in the first 50 seconds of the track (truth be told, there’s hardly any anywhere in the track, but that doesn’t prevent it from being something altogether listenable, fresh and most definitely likeable.
