'Rome' is the uplifting punch in the gut the world has been waiting for.



Synth-banger



Before our very eyes, we’re witnessing Prides lay out their territory. After dropping 'The Long Way Home' last year, you could of expected the Glaswegians to take a break, yet they’ve come back leaner, meaner and packed full of bonafide pop hooks.

Aiming squarely at the arenas of tomorrow, 'Rome' is a delectable and pristine affair, shimmering with cavernous passion and standing as a menacing shadow to last year’s debut album. From the filthy synths that cover the track with a late-night city vibe to the soaring final refrains that leave you ready to fight a football team, 'Rome' is the uplifting punch in the gut the world has been waiting for.

It’s a new year. but the story remains the same. Prides are once again the synth svengalis of pop. And this time, they’re not playing nice. Jamie Muir
