ROMANS is a British singer, songwriter, and producer who can do it all. Last year's "Prisoner" with Rejjie Snow was a smooth, garage-influenced track, then this year ROMANS came with the much harder "Love Is The Beast," featuring Avelino.
Today, we're sharing "Automatic," from a fully self-produced EP of the same name, and it shows off ROMANS pop songwriting chops. A wailing siren and vocal sample build atmosphere around his raw vocal performance, but things never get too busy.
“Being a massive Beatles fan, I’m aware that limitation is one of the best things about music—all those great records were made with only a few instruments and a few tracks on which to record those instruments," ROMANS explains. "The danger is, today, you can have as many tracks as you like. Simplicity and sparseness are hard to achieve.”
