FaB’s (short for Fitzsimon and Brogan) new single ‘Persuasion’ does the tricky job of distilling the heartbreak of unrequited love into a fun, breezy light affair. ‘Persuasion’ tells the all-too-familiar story of trying everything to win over someone’s heart, only to be constantly knocked back, again and again (“I guess in the end/I should have known/But now realise/That bird has flown”), and having to deal with the devastation this causes (“Gone forever we watched it burn/Gone forever/Never to return”). Despite the bittersweet themes, ‘Persuasion’ is actually a delightfully playful rock track, managing to frame unreturned love as a cheeky, welcome challenge as opposed to a debilitating event (“I’ll try persuasion/And hope one day you’ll see/Just give me some time/You’ll see I’m not the hurting kind”). The confident, self-assured vocals displayed on this track are delivered with a slinky, raspy, rock edge, reminiscent of someone like Tina Turner – and blends in perfectly with the spirited and bouncy guitar line. Overall, while ‘Persuasion’ is certainly a track with deep messages (“All that glitters won’t turn into gold”), clever vocal delivery and instrumentation manage to persuade this song into an entertaining listen. Consider us definitely persuaded – check out FaB’s new single ‘Persuasion’ today.
