Rome Will Burn Self Titled EP Review





Rome Will Burn are still newcomers, but this electronic alternative pop duo from Arizona, consisting of Alyssa Suede and Manifesto are certainly making an impression with their recently released self titled EP..

First song and latest single, 'Chameleon' radiantly opens with complementary electronic and synth sounds to match the repetitive yet effective vocals. It has brilliant rhythms and melody, and the use of strong language, gives it a slightly harder pop edge. This will easily hide in your mind and is adaptable for listeners, as they achieve what they set out too, with their electronic pop with a difference!

'These Three Words' has a more fragile air to it, with stand out emotive vocals that resonant wonderfully, with sweet sappy lyrics to fit the context, showing they can diversify more-so, and with charming results.

'Waging Romance' has a dramatic more serious feel to, but is very strong and infectiously catchy, making it a must hear, and features some almost folk inspired sounds which keeps things exciting and fresh, and shows of the duo's eclectic tastes and talents well.

'Live By The Beat' truly embodies the 'beat' and keeps it strong and pounding throughout, in what is one of the most mainstream pop offerings so far, making for a great hit dance track contender with it's electronic pulse.

Final song, 'Body Language' is very slick and sultry and captures this in the synth sounds well, before diving into a full blown pop in your face explosion, which is extremely groovy and will make you want to move your 'body'. Again there are some surprises here, with talking to add to context and dance and folk elements again. 

Rome Will Burn is a bit out of the norm for me, but that being said, this is a fun, exciting, intelligible and enjoyable self titled release. In these five songs, they manage to inject their unique influences and different moods in a clever and well constructed way. The duo's pretence is that people think there is nothing new or interesting in the genre of electronic pop, and I think anyone who hears this will easily agree that Rome Will Burn smash this idea and come out strong with their unique blend of electronic music. If you are looking for something inspiring and unusual, look no further!
