THE GLOOMIES‘ latest album ‘Romance’ immediately welcomes nostalgic vibes from the eighties, glazed with a hazy layer which somewhat gives off a futuristic sound.
Comprising of ten tracks, ‘Romance’ encompasses a ray of genres, including indie rock/shoe glaze, lo-fo pop, a brief injection of funky soul (featured in fourth offering, ‘LOOPS’) and concludes with a bop rock (ish) piece through ‘It’s OK’, still obtaining that sound from the decade that provided great music (with the exception of the last track, ‘It’s OK’) along with the strong presence of the hypnotic soundscapes.
Since the release of their dreamy/mesmerizing single ‘Space’ last November – which is included on this album – I was eagerly waiting for the duo to dish out an album…and finally, here it is! Believe me on this one, it’s definitely worth the wait.
So without further ado, listen to ‘Romance’ below:
