Los Angeles singer and songwriter DeathbyRomy plunges deeper into the dark fringes of pop as she exposes our most visceral desires on her brand new single Fiending for a Lover, out today on Capitol Records: LISTEN HERE. The single serves as DeathbyRomy’s first release since signing with leading entertainment company: SB Projects (Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, J Balvin).
The hard and heavy slice of mischievous alt-pop finds DeathbyRomy flirting with electronic dissonance as she confesses, My body’s growing quite impatient, I’m getting sick of all these waiting thoughts ever more potent and provocative in the depths of 2020 isolation. This song was written for all the lovesick romantics struggling with loneliness during this lockdown, she shares about the song’s inspiration. This is DeathbyRomy further merging pop, hip-hop, and electronic, and coating it all in a shiny, sexy black shimmer.
Fiending for a Lover is the follow-up to her single Kiss Me Goodbye, which dropped on May 22 and has been featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday, Apple Music’s New Music Daily, and YouTube Music’s Pop Rebel, while reaching nearly 2 million global streams already.
Since the release of DeathbyRomy’s 2019 Capitol Records debut EP Love u to Death, she has racked up millions of streams and garnered plenty of praise. Papermagazine dubbed her Gen Z’s dark princess of pop, while Music Connection called her a force to be reckoned with. And as her numbers keep rising, so do the accolades: DeathbyRomy gives a new definition to gothic-chic, wrote PopSugar, adding that she unapologetically brings an aesthetic fit for the underworld to the forefront of the indie scene.
Singer, songwriter, and dark-pop provocateur DeathbyRomy pays attention to every last detail. She pours both pain and euphoria into her catchy but heavy music, pitting electronic melodies and propulsive beats against hypnotic vocals and deeply personal lyrics. Now 20 years old, the Los Angeles-born Romy Flores wrote her first song at age 5 and began releasing her music at 15, mining inspiration from the iconoclastic artists she was raised on (The Beatles, Kanye West, to name a few). With her 2018 debut album Monsters, she soon drew an avid following and found countless fans turning up to her shows adorned in her signature eye makeup. Her Capitol Records debut, 2019’s Love u to Death EP, was short but sickly sweet, emphasizing her unique interweaving of rap boldness, electronic innovation, and raw rock roll passion. As Romy’s sound has taken shape, so has her DeathbyRomy persona: the Harajuku punk fashion, the corpsepaint-like makeup, and her hard-earned, utterly badass confidence. Stay tuned for more new music coming soon.
