This week’s Music You Should Know is the song ‘Rome’ by Yeasayer.
Rome is one of my favorite tracks off of the Brooklyn, New Yorkers sophmore album Odd Blood. The way lead singer, Chris Keating, uses his voice in the chorus really sticks with me and has me trying to sing the song hours after hearing it. The experimental yet dancey beat keeps you interested throughout the 3:53 of the song waiting to see where it will take you next. I definitely can see this song, or the slightly more pop friendly, ‘Ambling Alp’ making it onto mainstream radio.
Take a listen and please share your thoughts with us.
