ROMES’ essence is captured best by their single “Summer Sound.” On top of the song’s title, which is a short-and-sweet description of the band’s music, it’s a prime example of why ROMES’ music is going to be stuck in your head for the foreseeable future. Cheery synth melodies and easygoing vocals create an enchanting current that’s ready to propel you towards your next beach day. Based in Toronto, this alt-pop quartet have enough sparkling melodies and dreamy soundscapes to last you the whole summer. Light and airy vocals, irresistible hooks, waves of soft electronic ambience, ROMES have got it all. With this band as your soundtrack, you’ll have no problem forgetting all your worries. Even lyrics that touch on meaningful matters are undercut with playful rhythms and delivered with a sense of ‘it is what it is.’ ROMES is our favorite summer sound.
