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

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

Rina Sawayama was always going to be a pop mastermind, but with her debut album out and already gaining the kind of critical acclaim that makes a career, she’s quickly becoming something far more than she ever imagined.
