Drug Store Romeos have shared a new single called ‘Secret Plan’ from their forthcoming debut LP, The world within our bedrooms. Check it out below.
“‘Secret Plan’ was written during the first lockdown when the only time I could write was between 2am-7am because I live with 12 very noisy people,” according to a press release. “I wanted to make a purple song so I turned off all lights apart from my colour changing bulb which I made a magenta purple. It was pitch black outside so I was totally immersed. The light guided me in the choice of tonality, and my situation and setting must have influenced the rhythm and notes. I think it turned out pretty purple.”
The band added: “‘Secret Plan’ was partly inspired by the surrealist quote “bathed everyday reality in magic light”, and we wanted it to feel personal yet transportative. In my own life I try as hard as I can to see the magic in mundanity. Although it sounds cheesy, making the effort to remind yourself of the chaotic, absurd, beautiful layers of life can really help to keep things interesting.”
The world within our bedrooms is out June 25 via Fiction. Previously, the Hampshire trio shared a video for the lead single ‘What’s On Your Mind’.
