It is endearing to hear of an act grow and evolve. In a fast-food music industry where talent is hastily dismissed, Post Rome stand as a testament to the results of continued hard work. Having been musically creative since their school years, the Sunderland band are on an upward trajectory that doesn’t look like tailing off any time soon.
Their latest single, Want To Believe, is driving, anthemic, and hook-laden. Sounding like The 1975 on steroids, it will draw you in with its infectious charm.
It is poppy. But it’s pop with grit and substance. Boldly produced and performed with intricate musicianship, it maintains a foot firmly in the alternative genre. Want To Believe expertly walks the commercial line without stepping into Smash Hits territory.
It begins with ghostly guitars and atmospheric vocals reminiscent of Glasvegas’ most beautiful moments. Then, you’ll be whisked away into a full-blown indie classic. The chorus uplifts and rises like a Shed Seven hit of yesteryear.
This single proves that they are a band on track to achieve great things. It is a song that would have flooded indie disco dance floors back in the day. Post Rome yearn for mainstream attention and filled arenas. Want To Believe is the dawn of a stadium rock band for the future.
