ROMERO 'Honey b/w Neapolitan' 7"
Melbourne’s Romero wholeheartedly encapsulate this with their first outing “Honey”, a double A-side that takes its cues from the heavy hearted heavyweights of 70’s-80’s Punk and Power Pop, all the while flipping the script just enough to make it sound like 2020. Guitars shimmer and give off a brassy shine beneath bass lines that drive the hooks, while the drumming lays the bedrock (and roll) for show stealing vocals which really conjure up that old soul frenzy like not many others. It’s simply unreal how well Romero carry themselves this early in the piece.
