Drug Store Romeos - “Jim Lets Play” and a Socially Distanced Tour

‘Drug Store Romeos’ a triple threat from Fleet, Hampshire. Establishing their presence on the British new wave scene touring with the likes of The Orielles, The Big Moon and Soccer Mommy. DSR composition is complemented with vocalist/keyboardist Sarah Downie, bassist Charlie Henderson and drummer Jonny Gilbert.

The three-piece formed over a 6th form college community Facebook page. Enticed with the idea of being in a band, Sarah initiated the comradery  when responding to the ad Charlie and Jonny had posted online. Initially the opening was for a bass player but it seems the trio managed to look past musical boundaries and brought us some enchanting dream-pop. Captivating and cultivating a following since the late 2019’s, simpler times we can all agree. The group recently signed with ‘Chuff Media’ under the guidance of ‘red light management’.

Ethereal indie pop group just dropped new single “Jim lets play” released on 02/12/2020. (“pressurise me, carbonise me, synthesise me”) opening with poetic and playful lyrics and an accompanying synth and steady bass drum bar to compliment the indie pop tones that will sate your hunger for fresh new music this December. One certainly feels (“in a technicolour dream”) listening to ‘Jim Lets Play’, the 4th single to be released by the three-piece from Hampshire. Following recent singles ‘Now You’re Moving’ , ‘Frame Of Reference’ and ‘Quotations For Locations’,  [Drug Store Romeos] echoing across your earbuds with their latest slice of dreamy alt-pop, with ‘Jim, Let’s Play’.

*Drug Store Romeos* have also announced a run of socially distanced shows across England upcoming in the new year. Throughout February the trio will be playing  venues such as YES in Manchester on the 18th February & Omeara in London on the 19th February to name a few. Full tour list below.  They will be among the mavericks of breathing life back into live music during these dire times. A Covid friendly approach to bringing back the bones of live music we have all been waiting for. I certainly look forward to my live synth-essence serenade this February.
