The past year has been really good to Rebecca & Fiona.
A pop duo from Sweden who wants to make the world move, they racked up almost 70 million streams on Spotify, played around the world and now have released a holiday single that’s bound to become a classic. Not because it’s traditional in any way, but because it’s surprisingly different.
When one gazes upon the cover of “Cold As X-Mas,” they may assume it’s a high-energy pop song about wanting something extravagant from old St. Nick. Instead, this song plays like your favorite indie pop track. With a hypnotic chorus and a simplistic narrative, this is a track you could hear alongside the likes of Lorde and Halsey.
If you have the holiday spirit, but in your own special way but also like the current realm the pop scene is in – then this is the only song you need to add along to that playlist that includes that one Mariah Carey song a few dozen times.
