Getting To Know: Romm

We are thrilled to introduce ROMM, a dynamic Pop/R&B artist hailing from the North East of England, poised to captivate audiences with her upcoming single, "This Kinda Love." Scheduled for independent release on May 17th, 2024, this track promises to be a defining moment in ROMM’s burgeoning career.

Described by Danny West, Sentric Publishing Manager, as having a "really clear and strong vision," "This Kinda Love" encapsulates ROMM’s distinctive sound. The song, with its profound lyrics and compelling piano-driven arrangement, navigates the complexities of love in modern society. ROMM infuses strong lyrics to convey the challenges of navigating toxic relationships while being young and yearning for connection.

As ROMM explains, "The song is about toxic relationships and not really understanding where you stand or what to do, as no one warns you about this stuff. I wanted to put my feelings and frustration into words and I think a lot of people can relate to the song." Written during the pandemic, the track also features her brother, Nadeem, on keys.

Fans can look forward to three more singles and live gigs from ROMM later this year, with "Home" being the next track to watch out for. Get ready to be enchanted by ROMM’s authentic storytelling and soulful melodies.

1. Your new single, 'This Kinda Love,' is set to release on May 17th, 2024. Can you tell us about the inspiration behind the song and what message you hope to convey through its lyrics and piano-driven arrangement?

I was inspired by the friendships and relationships my close friends and I have experienced. I had been contemplating the idea for a while before sitting down at the piano to song-write. The lyrics and chords came to me really quite naturally. While the song addresses toxic relationships and setting boundaries, it also emphasises choosing what’s right for you and putting yourself first. While the lyrics are moving, I wanted to make the listeners feel empowered. I think it's a freeing song - it's about saying no to people when you need to and realising that you're strong enough to do so. 

  1. You mention that 'This Kinda Love' navigates the complexities of toxic relationships, a theme many people can relate to. How did your personal experiences influence the writing of this track, and what was it like to put those feelings into words?

I’ve experienced friendships and relationships that felt toxic, one-sided, and unfair. Learning to set boundaries and prioritise myself was what mainly influenced the track. The whole songwriting and recording process was extremely cathartic! It felt like such a good chance to fully express myself.

  1. Your brother, Nadeem, plays the keys on 'This Kinda Love.' How has collaborating with family influenced the creation of this single, and do you feel it added a deeper personal touch to the music?

I love collaborating with my brother, Nadeem. Not only is he a great musician, but we’re also very close and always have a good time together. He helped shape the song, giving it the edge and emotion I was looking for. The keys are crucial to the overall sound, and having a similar musical ear allowed him to align with the concept while also providing a valuable different perspective.

  1. With 'This Kinda Love' being a tantalising glimpse into your distinctive sound, what can fans expect from your upcoming releases and live gigs later this year, including your next track 'Home'?

My next single, 'Home,' is another piano-based track, though it has a much softer sound. It’s about spending time with loved ones, whether family, friends, partners, or even people you just met but who make you feel at home. I’ll be performing at the Cluny in October and have a show in Barcelona in July, which is very exciting. 

  1. As an artist from the North East of England, how has your background and environment shaped your musical journey and the themes you explore in your songs?

The local music scene in the North East has really influenced my musical journey from a young age. My family, who loves live music, always encouraged me to perform at open mics, venues, and bars. We have family friends who were in a well-known band in the 80s and are still gigging in the North East. This exposure to the live music scene has been invaluable, and I’m very grateful for it.
