Recently in an interview with Jack Saunders of BBC Radio One. (On the occasion of premiering her new track “The Sea“). Romy mentioned that she had always wanted to release her track “The Sea” during summertime. I can easily understand why she was so keen to do this. The song is the fourth from her solo debut album “Mid Air,” which is set to drop on 8th September via Young. “The Sea” is quite different from her previous tracks “Strong,” “Enjoy Your Life,” and “Loverher,” since it has a noticeable Ibiza-inspired soundscape of tropical house beats. Listening to it makes me feel like I am on a beach, surrounded by sun-kissed sands and azure seas. The reasons exactly why it made sense that this track was released during the summer season.
Romy’s latest tracks have been quite revealing, “The Sea” another collaboration with Fred Again… and Stuart Price, is no exception. In addition to “Loveher,” the song “The Sea,” stands out as her most sincere and open work yet. In it, she speaks candidly about her experience of falling in love with her wife (Vic Lentaigne). Furthermore how she was able to distinguish these feelings from mere infatuation or temporary happiness. The lyrics are without doubt a testament to the power of love and the strength of Romy’s emotional connection to her partner.
FARFETCH, the global fashion platform brings us a video for “The Sea” directed by Mollie Mills. The video features Romy and her wife and longtime visual collaborator Vic Lentaigne and is an intimate portrayal of their relationship. The clip is a beautiful representation of love and connection, and it’s sure to touch the hearts of viewers everywhere.
I think it is simply amazing when music can tap into such universal themes and bring people together through shared experiences. Romy’s solo work is the measure of that.
