As a rock music blogger, each year I see numerous live shows and countless bands. Every once in awhile, I’m at a gig reviewing a band when I’m absolutely blown away by one of the opening acts. They are rare but incredibly lucid moments where I realize I’ve stumbled across something special. It happened a few years ago with 21 Pilots, and just happened again this weekend at the SWMRS show at Orlando’s BackBooth.
You just have to love the chorus to “Avoiding Boys,” the bodacious new single from ROMP.
“I don’t care what you might say,
This is gonna be a great fucking day”
