Drug Store Romeos craft cosmic, wistful pop imbued with swirling psychedelic-hues and ethereal magnetism. As the trio release their new single ‘Quotations for Locations’, we caught up with them to talk comedy, fave Instagram accounts and The Secret Life Of Plants.
With a gentle, shimmering magic at the core, ‘Quotations for Locations’ purveys a breezy, lo-fi sonic haven replete with unassumingly catchy dance grooves. It’s a perfect introspective bop that is at once gracefully buoyant and tinged with pensive melancholy. Only the third single from the Fleet trio, this latest track furthers Drug Store Romeos’ reputation and aptitude for creating richly intoned and intricate minimalism within their music and we can’t wait to hear more.
Speaking on the release, the band details, “‘Quotations For Locations’ is a song that zooms in on some intricacies of life which in turn causes you to zoom out from yours. Allowing you to then become completely enveloped in it’s minimalist arrangement and light dancey groove.”
The track arrives accompanied by an enchanting video, made by vocalist Sarah Downey, that further captures this gloriously charming world that Drug Store Romeos craft.

I think you should listen to…
Just because I did last night – listen to polka dots and moonbeams by Wes Montgomery at night whilst lying on your bed and sipping a jasmine green tea. Candle light helps enhance the mood.

The worst job I’ve ever had…
