In some ways Romy picked an ungrateful year to release her 90’s-dance influenced banger ‘Lifetime’. On the other hand, a euphoric song about togetherness and human connection might have been exactly what we needed during these trying times. Maybe this piece of maximalist, end-of the-world pop came when we needed the escape the most. The image of a crowd singing ‘If this world comes to an end, I want to be there with you’ while dancing to Romys emotional dance music in Slottsskogen is truly a comforting one.
Romy is one third of UK’s own The XX and ‘Lifetime’ is her debut solo single and the first sample from her coming solo album. Catch Romy’s DJ-set at Red Bull Stage Dungen at Way Out West 2022.
