Power Pop has always been an island, a demilitarised zone where folks
can lay down their arms, and join hands around the hook; a chimera of
positivity and nervous energy created to provide some type of solace in a
humourless and cold world.
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.
At this point it’s pretty pointless mentioning who else they sound
like; why waste time trainspotting when you can be raging in your room,
tearing it up with a big dumb grin plastered across your face? Shouting
along to the chorus until you’re hoarse because it hits that one bone in
your tired, apathetic body that can still feel the amount of joy
required to remove you, if only for a second, from a world that’s trying
to hold you back.
‘’Honey’’ is a record for the freaks and geeks alike. Hell, it’s for
anybody that needs to be picked up and reminded that’s it’s not all
