Now nearing the end of October, many of us are looking for some sense of normalcy in these strange times. Cue ROMES and Haiva Ru. Bringing you a tune dedicated to cutting through all this melancholy, ROMES recruited Haiva Ru to collaborate on the shimmering, summertime tune “ALL THE TIME.”
With swirling synths, infectious rhythms and airy vocals, “ALL THE TIME” has everything you need in a nostalgic, indie pop tune. If you’re not getting lost in the enchanting lyrics, then you’re bopping along to the funky production. The Toronto duo and Santa Barbara artist first connected after both landing on Spotify’s Fresh Finds playlist this summer and remotely collaborated on “ALL THE TIME” in the middle of the pandemic lockdown.
ROMES is an independent duo from Toronto, Canada made up of brothers Jacob and Nicolas Bitove. After supporting The Strokes last summer, the brothers spent the past year teaming up with various producers and artists including Mark Foster (Foster The People) and Paul Meany (Twenty One Pilots). These collaborations, coupled with the brothers’ undeniable and natural chemistry, has helped ROMES craft a sound that weaves in and out of different genres, presenting a fresh take in the alternative pop space.
