The young star of Rome's "Out Of It" video is cooler than you'll ever be, full stop.
Tucked away in Kensington Market, Downtown Torontos most culturally diverse neighborhood, ROMES converted the basement of their semi-detached red-brick into their full time rehearsal space. For the past year, the band relentlessly spent their waking hours there, exploring their eclectic tastes in music and ultimately writing the tracks for their debut EP "Believe".
ROMES have harnessed their pop sensibilities into an alternative sound that is completely their own. With soulful melodies and bright, funky guitar riffs playing off gritty synths, the tracks are instant, high-energy, anthemic ear candy. These larger-than-life tunes, backboned by thumping, hip-hop rhythms and disco-inspired bass-lines, put a modern twist on the groups early musical inspirations.
