PEERLESS PICK OF THE WEEK: ROMANCES
London based five-piece Romances are kicking up a storm on the capital's emerging live music scene with their trilogy of 2017 singles. The debut releases began with 'How Can I Be Dead', released back in September. The single introduces the driving force behind the band's debut, both in the obvious waves they have made in the short time since its release but also in the pulsating rhythm of their debut. It is a solid introduction to the band, keeping the listener hooked and hungry for more. After teasing their fans with a couple of mere 15 second clips, Romances returned with 'Silence', the ballad that is anything but. It is delicate yet powerful, with the light guitar riffs allowing the vocal melody to take the forefront and let the lyrics and message be the focus. Finally, 'Do You Wanna Know?' completes the trio of powerful debuts. The finale comes to life from the first note, it is haunting, enchanting and hits you deep. The leaping vocals and much heavier instrumental completes the trilogy with just the right amount of alarm and suspense to leave us waiting for Romances next release.
'Romances are indicative of what makes their hometown of London beautiful - International multiculturalism, freedom, expression, creation and rock and roll.'
