New Zealand’s award-winning artist Georgia Lines has returned with her latest single, the synth-pop stadium-ready anthem, ‘Romeo.’
Following the phenomenal success of her previous chart-topper, ‘Monopoly,’ ‘Romeo’ leans even further into the pop-soundscape Georgia has become synonymous with. Layered vocals, stacked harmonies, 80s inspired synths and hook-laden choruses are paired with an intensity in the lyrics, as Georgia explores universal themes of relationship fantasies vs. realities.
“‘Romeo’ is about the reality of the tensions you can sometimes feel in a relationship and wanting the ease of the ‘Romeo’ fantasy,” she explains. “The track follows on from the pop era I have been in over the last little while. Following on from ‘Nothing But Love’ and ‘Monopoly,’ ‘Romeo’ closes the pop chapter before launching into my debut album.”
Co-written with Joseph Farris, who also produced the track, ‘Romeo’ underwent many iterations before the duo finally landed on the perfect version. “‘Romeo’ went through so many changes, so many versions, so many different versions of the choruses,” says Georgia. “At one stage we almost threw the baby out with the bathwater and deleted the entire chorus for a whole day. When we had a break and gained some sonic perspective/fresh ears, we realised “wait”; we’ve literally deleted everything that made the song so great!”
