World (Girl Underground) – If you needed another reason to love Rachel Fannan (this jumpsuit for Big Bud Press is one of them) the current The Bomb’s front-woman has proved yet again that her talent is as diverse as the world we live in. If familiar with Fannan’s current project, The Bomb, the attitude and delivery is born from concentrated classic Rock N’ Roll; a refreshing modern sound that bares it’s skeleton from the greats and pushed over the top by Fannan’s vocals.
Yet, on the latest Instant Love Series — a bi-weekly collection of famous love songs “re-imagined” with female vocalists –Fannan takes a Beach Boys classic, “Don’t Worry Baby” and redefines the notion, maintaining the original intent of love and displaying another side of Fannan’s talent. While the song echoes the laid back qualities that the Beach Boys embodied, being credited to producer Sune Rose Wagner of The Raveonettes, the Instant Love version strips down the doo-wop and focuses on the story line, allowing the emotion of the track to guide the melody.
Covering a beloved classic is not only difficult and nerve wrecking to artists and listeners alike, but a challenge to pay homage while staying true to your own sound. The collaboration between Wagner and Fannan beautifully captures the nostalgia in a modern air allowing one more reason to love Rachel Fannan and now, Instant Love.
