Single of the Week: Romie Knows by High Street Barton Blues + Free Download
In a Story so distinctly cinematic you couldn’t make it up (unless the movies have been lying to me this whole time), the man behind High Street Barton Blues, Danny Ferraro, left his job on Wall Street to Focus on High Street Barton Blues. And, with this belter of a single, I can see why. There’s a special kind of alchemy going on here, a sharp and brilliant piece of piano-driven pop. Sure, it’s an angsty love song, but one that doesn’t rely too heavily on the spewing on wanton niceties to achieve relatability status. Charismatic lead vocals and some seriously great piano work push this beyond your general electronica-piano nonsense, giving HSBB a firm grounding in the retro and the established to play with. Just get your teeth into that pre-chorus for proof. If ever there’s a hit just waiting to happen then we’ve found it in Romie Knows.
