I couldn’t help but dream of you. There, we were able to be ourselves, to be connected like we wanted. You would wrap your long, sinewy arms around me. Your hands would inch up my back like serpents slithering in the sand. When there was no around, you would pull me close and kiss my forehead, smiling with pride. We would fight sleep like warriors, hoping that our eyelids wouldn’t fall prey to our tiresome bodies. Just a little more time with you, my mind would chant, until the night took us as victims. When I awoke, with no one around me, I could still feel your arms enveloping me.
Roman Photos performs some new wave, nu romantic pop that I am so loving at the moment. With whipping synths, yearning vocals, and glimmering sounds, it is perfect dancing-by-yourself music. Dark, nu romance for the nu age. Moody without being gloomy, joyous without being too boisterous, and passionate without being too suffocating. A glimmering dark pop gem.
“These Arms” is a b-side from an upcoming 7”. In the meantime, get more at bandcamp.
