Rome Hero Foxes
Rome Hero Foxes
Houston's Rome Hero Foxes named their sophomore LP, '18 Summers', but it more accurately describes the band's beginnings. Shortly after graduating high school, the quintet was discovered in 2016 by Dance Gavin Dance's Kurt Travis and released 'For When You're Falling Backwards." As far as debuts go, it's expanse melded the urgency of post-hardcore with an inward gaze offsetting any chaos. That introspection, bent over swirling guitars and mesmerizing vocal lines, led to reinvention. Instead of baring their teeth through arrangements that spiraled and warped, the band took a self-imposed journey into simpler territory. A pair of twin EPs, "I/O" and "Horoscope", reset Rome Hero Foxes as a group indebted to surf rock and indie pop instead of gnarlier waves, with the latter predicting their shimmering follow-up. Enter the real 18 Summers.

"During this time of writing all of this material, it made me envision all these songs as this sort of time capsule-like void or world where time is slow but life keeps moving faster," vocalist and rhythm guitarist CJ Burton explains. With that definition in mind, it's easy to understand the varied warmth and speeds put to tape here. "Seattle Queen", with Andrew Hagan's percolating keyboards leading the way, places love's angled complexities behind the slice of bubblegum pop. "Chest Piece" splits its pathway between R&B schmaltz and valued pop-punk. Other fare, like the Black Mirror nod "San Junipero," heighten interpersonal highs to infectious, but experimental highs. It's the only track that reminds listeners of the band's darker roots, with flecks of mathy guitar flanking verses. This album is as concerned with love as it is with its absence in the face of growing older and growing apart.
