Romero promotional picture. The five band members stand beneath a graffitied bridge on dirt with a few weeds around them. Behind them a dirty body of water can be seen, though it is mostly blocked from view by concrete. The shape of the bridge arches over them.

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.
