ROMY MADLEY CROFT – ” Lifetime “

Posted: October 3, 2020 in MUSIC

I like how The xx are taking their time these days and allow each other individual freedom in-between their records. It’s already been almost four years since their last album and it looks like we might have to wait a bit longer a follow-up. Following Jamie xx‘ ongoing on-and-off solo adventures singer Romy Madley Croft is now starting her own one and her first single is a surprising one. Well, not in terms of quality because she is one hell of a gifted songwriter and her sense for catchy pop hooks played a crucial part in the global success of her main band. Lifetime is a euphoric dance pop anthem, an ode to the club, to the euphoria in celebrating music together with others in safe spaces. Needless to say Romy couldn’t have picked a worse/ better time to drop such an uplifting piece of music. It’s a bittersweet tribute everything we currently can’t celebrate due to the pandemic but also a much needed boost of energy to keep on fighting for moments of euphoria, even when things remain as uncertain as they do right now. Because they are the ones that make life liveable,

Romy Madley Croft of The XX has just released “Lifetime,” her first solo single. Croft revealed the song’s imminent arrival yesterday. Croft first announced the solo project back in April during an Instagram Live session: “For the past couple years I’ve been writing a lot of songs for other people, writing a lot of songs for myself. I ended up with all these songs so I’m going to release a solo album under my name,” she explained. “It’s just going to be under ‘Romy.’ I’m hopefully going to be releasing it soon. I have loads of songs and I feel excited to try something new.”

When pressed about the sound of her solo material, the singer said that clubbing was a big inspiration: “I guess one of the main inspirations and things that I love is club classics—Ibiza house, trance music, stuff that you can really dance to but also sing along to. What I realized was a lot of those club classics are big songs as well as just being fun to dance to.”

The debut single from Romy is out now.
