Toronto based indie rock band Fast Romantics have released their first single off their upcoming, 2019 album – the follow up to their 2017 sophomore release, American Love. “Mexico” is the first track the band has ever produced and recorded themselves and takes the tone of a ballad with roots in contemporary pop while driven by the band’s rich, lush, and unique use of layered vocal harmonies.
On their latest single, lead vocalist and key songwriter Matthew Angus had this to say,
“Mexico is the first song we’ve ever self-produced and self-recorded, and really I feel like it’s the start of something really special for us. We started writing our next record earlier this year and we didn’t really think too much about who we’d be producing it with. We just thought we were making demos. Once the songs started revealing themselves we realized that these weren’t demos, these were turning into finished songs, and they already had this edge and honesty that really resonated with us.”
Fast Romantics are currently on tour that started in Montreal and will take them across Ontario throughout November.
