Post Rome have been cutting their teeth in the North East gigging scene. The Sunderland three piece have made a splash both in their hometown and Newcastle, playing sold-out shows. I like their song ‘Different Kids’ because it takes influence from the 80s, but has their own refreshing sound, which helps them stand apart. They’ve got a new song called ‘Want to Believe’, which comes out on the 24th May.
‘Want to Believe’ has big production which reminds me of The 1975. I think the big guitar work works well with the synths because it shows their ambition to be massive. I like how they overdubbed over ten vocal tracks, because each one of them has their own flavour. When live music has its resurgence, I can see this track being played in much bigger venues.
If ‘Want to Believe’ is anything to go by, Post Rome are heading onto bigger things. Anyone who is into either The 1975 or Pale Waves is gonna love their colossal sound.
