ROMP's debut LP, Departure From Venus, is very good, and it's due out March 4. Vinyl will ship ahead of the release date and digital downloads will be delivered with all orders before the release date as well. There is a bundle for both 12" variants at a discount, and you can also pick up a cassette of this release on this page (courtesy of Funeral Sounds).
ROMP is tight. If you listen to the first single "Last Year," you'll find yourself in the middle of a kinda punk-y, kinda poppy track where vocalist Madison Klarer injects stark lyricism over driving, guitar-led musicianship. We think it might be called angry pop, or maybe it's called punk-pop, or something like that, but whatever it's called, we think this New Jersey band is awesome, and Departure From Venus is just the first step in them figuring out their sound.
