ROMES: Out Of It Single Review


Canadian/ Irish pop quartet ROMES have unveiled their brand new single Out Of It via Five Seven Music. Now this fantastic four piece consist of Canadian born brothers Jacob (vocals) and Nick Bitove (drums), Andrew Keyes (bass) and James Tebbitt (guitar). The childhood friends met while attending school in Ireland, connecting over their mutual passion for rock music and undeniable chemistry as musicians.

This sumptuous single was produced by Tony Hoffer (Beck, Phoenix, Fitz and the Tantrums, M83) and the official music video was directed by drummer Nicolas Amadeus in Northern Ontario, Canada.

Here is what frontman Jacob Alexander had to say “We’ve been playing ‘Out Of It’ at our shows this year and have always had people come up to us after the shows, asking what it was. Inspired by the fans passion for the song, we decided to go back into the studio with Tony and record a studio version. The writing was inspired by Beyonce. I just imagine Queen B on stage doing that leg move she does, belting out the lyrics”.

Out Of It is a compelling cut which gave me a glimpse of what to expect from the forthcoming sophomore. I fell for this song hook, line and sinker on my very first listen. Those captivating lyrics packed a punch, the synth melody was edgy and upbeat whilst the vibrant vocals radiated plenty of indie goodness. Actually you could see this formidable tune as an anthem in the making.

The official music video was simplistic, these visuals showed a young girl walking down a path whilst rocking out to this infectious number.

Out Of It can be purchased from iTunes
