The enveloping vocal partnership of Romy and Oliver is one that would’ve dropped-jaws in any decade this century, and set amidst a shivering soundscape of beats and plucks, their bedroom-reared concrete-soul is being justly heralded as the UK’s most original and treasured alt. pop artifact of late.
