I’m a fan of Rome’s music, his Voyeur EP being a particular favorite, but I have to admit that sometimes it takes me a few spins to fully understand what he’s trying to say. His lyrics and accompanying visuals can be dense and cryptic, hinting at a greater purpose that isn’t always immediately apparent. That’s the case here as well, on first play I like how this song sounds but beyond a generalities I’m not sure what it’s really about (yet). Which is just fine, it’s nice when music makes you use your head for something other than nodding.
For some more insight into Rome’s mind check out this interview with Karmaloop, which actually has a brief explanation of the concept behind this video.
