R.A.B.B.I.I.'s debut "Why Can't I Be You" [Video Premiere]

Taking their name from the the phrase 'Revolutions Are Best Before Initial Inception,' the Swedish experimental pop duo R.A.B.B.I.I. jumpstarted their musical venture with the captivating debut "Why Can't I Be You". With only the one single under their belt it is hard to predict where the duo may go with future releases, but their debut shines a clear light that they can easily branch out from here. 

While "Why Can't I Be You" carries similarities to a number of other eccentric acts within their genre including the quirkiness of Grimes' vocal charm, R.A.B.B.I.I. keep to a lighter, more palatable edge with a smooth backing. In keeping with the grounded, yet edgy vibe from the song the duo have released an accompanying music video.

With bizarre visuals used to break things up, the video for "Why Can't I Be You" acts as a brief look into the relationship of multiple female pairs. Set mostly in a school-like landscape, the video focuses on what seem to be students going through the typical day to day with a few kinks mixed in.

Seeing as how "Why Can't I Be You" is just the beginning, we can expect more great things to come from R.A.B.B.I.I. soon.
