Rebecca & Fiona Slow It Down For “Cold As Xmas”
It’s impossible to write about this song without talking about the cover. Rebecca & Fiona add a little sizzle to the holidays with their sexy santa outfits and general fabulousness. Is “Cold As Xmas” worthy of such iconic artwork? In a nutshell, yes. The Swedish duo slow it down on the icy ballad, showing unexpected restraint. “I don’t wanna be alone tonight, now the stars are shining bright outside my window on this lonely Christmas Eve,” they sing. “Oh baby, when it’s cold outside, all I want is you to hold me tight.”
How did the song come about? “After a day playing around in the studio with our team, we suddenly realized that we had made the best fucking Christmas song ever!” Rebecca & Fiona explain. “It is an ambient ballad that we both feel very strongly about, musically and emotionally. This release is our gift to all of you who stuck with us this year, through our changes in genres and through our first live tour. You were with us all the time, and we wish you a great holiday season and a Happy New Year!” Listen to “Cold As Xmas” below.
