#3 of 2013
Dear Poptastic Readers,
#3 in our Top Songs of 2013 is “Union” by Rebecca & Fiona. You can click on the song title to see what Poptastic Confessions had to say about it previously.
Our contributor Rao of the Brazilian blog Disco Attacks first introduced us to Rebecca & Fiona earlier in the year when us sent me the videos for “Jane Doe” and “Taken Over” (#12 on our countdown this year). We liked the songs, but somehow we were distracted by something else and didn’t give them their proper attention — until “Union” came along. This amazing song captivated us from the first listen. It made us go bonkers for the Swedish DJ duo. We are not quite sure what it is about this song, but we absolutely love it.
The video is fabulous and we love the ABBA-esque styling. There is something about their attitude that reminds us of Keren and Sara of Bananarama.
Rebecca & Fiona came to San Francisco twice this year. Sadly, we didn’t see them either time as they were performing very, very late at a trendy club aimed at people in their 20s. We just don’t fit the bill anymore. Oh well.
Their sophomore album should be out next year. Their debut album called I Love You, Man and it is ace! “Bullets” being one of our favourite tracks. There is a fabulous new track called "Hot Shots" that is part of a fundraising effort for AIDS awareness. We are unsure if it is the next single or not. If it is, watch for it on next year's list!
“Union” is available on iTunes. Don’t delay ... Buy it today.
