Romero promotional picture. The five band members all facing the camera, stood against a black backdrop. Singer Alanna Oliver is in the middle, flanked by a further two band members on either side of her. She is holding a tambourine that's glinting under the studio lights.

An all too simplistic way to describe this would be if Sheer Mag were less Thin Lizzy and more Undertones. Romero clearly worship at the altar of power pop (see the blurb for this single on their Bandcamp) and maybe the '70s in general, but their sound definitely places them after the last 40 years of rock and roll. Reminiscent of even The Vaccines and The Strokes in places (sorry for all that turns off) the buzzsaw guitars have a certain sheen to them.
