Canadian pop quartet ROMES showcases an outré sound that has been highly hybridized with the grooviness of disco, punchy intensity of trip-hop and rhythmic stickiness of pop. Their self-titled debut record takes you from starry-eyed emotions to solo chill introspection while delivering unexpected melodic twists. It’s got the substance of both mainstream and independent beats where your ears can find newness within familiarity. Dig in:

For their debut record, ROMES turned a basement located in Downtown Toronto into a rehearsal space where they experimented with various genres. Their debut album was released back in October 6th of last year. As of now, the four piece is preparing for their Canadian tour:

2/6 – The Fox Cabaret (Vancouver, Canada)
