London Calling oktober 2022, Friday


Romero is a burst of hard hitting, punk-laced power-pop that tips its hat to the classics whilst remaining fresh amongst the modern-day punk landscape. Their debut ‘Turn It On!’ is like a memorable party; steeped with twist-like dancing, chats with strangers, air-shredding, lover’s tiffs, wrong decisions and enjoying the ‘now’. The Australian band waste no time with their melodic guitar leads in a Ramones-y pace,  powerful solo’s and soaring choruses. Romero consists of Alanna Oliver (vocals), brothers Adam Johnstone (guitar), Dave Johnstone (drums), Fergus Sinclair (guitar) and Justin Tawill (bass), who found each other after crossroads in life. The band was identified as one to watch in the mail-order punk , before their independenly released ‘Troublemaker’ landed them airplay and headline shows.
