It is funny how sometimes when you first hear a song that you like it, but you aren't crazy about it. And then you hear it again, you go bonkers. That is what recently happened to me with Rebecca & Fiona as I now have bought all their music on iTunes. Hooray!
But now I turn my head to Capital Cities. A few months ago, my friend Jason sent me music video that had them walking about the woods. I liked the song, but wasn't crazy about it for some odd reason. Then this week, I saw on Facebook that Jason saw them in concert and even got to meet them. He said the show was as much fun as seeing Bananarama in concert.
So I was curious again. I decided to give them another try. I went to YouTube and searched Capital Cities. I didn't see the video of them walking around the woods. However, I saw a brand new video for them for the song "Safe And Sound." I absolutely LOVED it. Here it is ...
I immediately messaged Jason telling him that I loved the song and I was downloading from iTunes and getting ready to write a blog about it. He told me that the previous video was for the same song. Somehow, the new video really captured the energy and fun of the song and I loved it.
Apparently, their new album is out this summer. Hopefully, I will like more of their music. So who is Capital Cities? They are a male duo who sing in unison like Bananarama and Rebecca & Fiona. See a pattern here?
Their names are Ryan and Sebu and they are from L.A. They are also currently on tour and will be on Conan on June 6. And if all that isn't good enough, they have free downloads on their official website! Check out the remake of Madonna's "Holiday" and Sinead O'Conner's "Nothing Compares 2 U."
All this love of duos makes me kinda sad that I never formed my own dance/pop duo. Now at the ripe age of 43, I'm probably far too old now. However, maybe I will. Stay tuned ...
"Safe And Sound" is available on iTunes.
