Toronto quartet ROMES release new track “Someone” via Five Seven Music across all digital platforms. The two parts Irish, two parts Canadian alt-pop band also released an official music video for “Someone,” filmed entirely on a GoPro camera. “‘Someone’ is about how anxiety triggers feelings of insecurity and cripples your ability to convey your emotions. It was written at a time when I felt lost and alone. I had a strong desire to be with someone but couldn’t bring myself to express how I felt, knowing that if I did, it would be too late.” — Jacob Alexander, ROMES. Following “Deja Vu”, “Someone” is the second new track to release off ROMES’ upcoming self-titled album, out later this year.
“The inspiration for the ‘Someone’ video came from the centriphone idea conceptualized by Nicolas Vuignier. I figured it’d be cool to build a rig and go to some spots around Toronto and replicate the effect with us and a GoPro. On the very first shot of the day, the camera, flying around at 30mph, flew into Jacob’s face and bust open his gums. That’s the final clip you see in the video. I think he now has a fear of helicopters.”
– Nick Amadeus, ROMES
