Rebecca & Fiona Release Debut U.S. Album ‘I Love You, Man’

It’s been a while since EDM has had a chance to celebrate a proper album from a woman.  Today (July 10), REBECCA & FIONA, Sweden’s two budding female singer/songwriters and producer/DJs make their North American debut with the release of their Swedish Grammis Award-Winning album I LOVE YOU, MAN on Ultra Music.  “The heady collection of dream-pop recalls Annie, Oh Land and the 4AD roster, particularly Lush–but with the wall of guitar fuzz replaced by a blanket of synth,” wrote Kerri Mason in Billboard (6/2/12).  “It’s a welcome anomaly in EDM’s drop-obsessed, testosterone driven landscape.”

Along with the album, there is also the new single “Dance.” Rebecca Scheja and Fiona Fitzpatrick teamed with producers Axel Bauer & Alexander Berg to create a track which U.K. music site Pop Justice called a “brooding technoballad masterpiece…It’s amazing.”  Its accompanying visual is a shadowy and mysterious video directed by Denmark’s Laerke Herthoni (who also collaborated with Rebecca & Fiona on “Bullets”).

Irresistibly catchy and heavily beat oriented with lovable vocals, I LOVE YOU, MAN—also featuring tracks produced by Adrian Lux and Carli (Robyn/Crookers)—is dance pop at its most superlative.  Leading the charge with “Dance” is the Swedish triple-platinum “Bullets” and “Jane Doe,” all available now for the first time on this side of the Atlantic.  The album also includes their collaborations with Spank Rock and Kaskade.

“Swedish DJ duo Rebecca & Fiona is out and about with I Love You, Man, a light and airy dance album that feels gilded in gold.”

“Rebecca Scheja and Fiona Fitzpatrick, known to EDM aficionados as Rebecca and Fiona, are two performers on the rise. Their collaborations with Kaskade, Adrian Lux, and Basutbude have earned them recognition in their homeland, Sweden, but with the release of their debut I Love You, Man (due Tuesday, July 10 via Ultra Music), the twosome looks to take on the North American market, where the popularity of EDM is booming.  But while I Love You, Man features the electronic textures of modern club music, the songwriting is decidedly old-school, owing nearly as much to the classic synth-pop of Robyn or The Pet Shop Boys as it does the chilly vibes of Tiësto or David Guetta.”
