Rebecca & Fiona‘s debut album was one of 2011′s big obsessions at Popjustice HQ so we are VERY PLEASED INDEED that the Swedish DJ / production / popwarbling duo are going to be globally enormous in 2012.
They’ve given us the first look at the video for their new single ‘Dance’ and it’s a bit of a spooky one but there are some male models in it eventually meaning that by the end everyone is 100% worth looking at, so it’s worth enduring the moments of terror.
If you haven’t come across Rebecca & Fiona yet you are in for a treat. They make smart, punchy and slightly arty modern electronic pop, so if you like stuff like Robyn and Marina and Fever Ray you will probably find that they’re up your street. They’re already a platinum-selling act in Sweden, where they’re also the faces of Adidas, recently won a Grammy for Best Dance Act, and have their own TV show.
‘We Are Girls’ is a good showcase of the sort of thing they do.
This one, ‘Jane Doe’, is amazing too – the video’s a Nicki Minaj-meets-iamamiwhoami sort of ‘affair’.
Anyway the plan for the rest of 2012 is to make everyone outside Sweden go ‘oh this is quite good you know’ so Rebecca & Fiona are currently on tour in the States with more global dates and bits and bobs to be announced in due course.
