FaB Is Charming On “Persuasion”

FaB (short for Fitzsimon and Brogan), are unlike any other group you’ll find in the industry today. With their own uniquely distinct style of alternative/adult contemporary music, they’re bringing a taste of the 1990s and sprinkling it with a modern splash to the scene. Cheeky, charming and sweet all at the same time, ‘Persuasion’ tells the story of a resilient, yet unrequited love (“Perhaps one day/I’m gonna find something that will change your mind/I’ll try persuasion/It’s all that’s left in me”). FaB’s Bee Brogan’s vocals are reminiscent of a Joan Jett-type vocalist – husky, raspy but also rich, alluring and inviting. Shout out to the production, as ‘Persuasion’ makes good use of a moving drum pattern, electric guitars and background vocals. What’s great about this track is that you can’t help but root for the narrator as she tells her story (“I’ll try persuasion/And hope one day you’ll see/Just give me a little time/You’ll see I’m not the hurting kind”). It’s a rare skill to have as a songwriter, for Neil Fitzsimon to be able to get the listener to relate – and ‘Persuasion’ has this in spades. By the end of the song’s final chorus and chants (“Come on please/Just give me some time), you’ll be rooting for FaB as well.
