Romero - Honey 7"

Labels: Cool Death Records

Formats: Vinyl/Digital

Release Date: 14 Feb 2020


1. Honey

2. Neapolitan

I did some more random listening on Bandcamp the other day and discovered this great power-pop/punk band from Melbourne, Australia. They're a five-piece and Honey is their debut release I think. It was released back in February of last year by Cool Death Records, also from Melbourne and it's now sold out (it had two pressings on very limited vinyl). 

Sometimes I really go for music like this. ‘Honey’ is a danceable 70’s/80’s garage-inspired pop song with clean vocals and instrumentation, yet just the right amount of grittiness too. Romero is a total gem of a band and they don’t sound like this is their first release (it may not be, but I can’t find out more info on them, so please correct me if I’m wrong).

Their second song ‘Neapolitan’  is as retro sounding as the 7”s title-track and it’s just as good. Tempo wise, it’s dialled back slightly but that doesn’t change things at all, as it’s so catchy and hummable. Romero puts forward such a positive statement with this release. Hopefully they’ll have a full-length or something on the way soon as the more people that can hear them the better.
