The Burning Of Rome – With Us

The Burning Of Rome – With Us

‘With Us’ is the debut album from Gypsy Punk band The Burning of Rome and is due for release on the 18th September via Surfdog Records. The band is Joe Aguilar (Guitar and Vocals), Adam Traub(Vocals and Keyboard), Aimee Jacobs (Keyboards and Vocals), Lee Williams(Drums), and Colin Kohl (Bass). The band has just won ‘Best Alternative’ at the2012 San Diego Music Awards and to get a feel of this band’s mind-set here is a quote from their acceptance speech:

“To the kind civilians that thought enough of our music to vote for us at the SDMA’s this year, a great and many thanks for your continued support. If it were scientifically plausible we’d teleport into each of your homes right now and wrap you in rainbows of appreciation.”

And that sort of sums up their music too, it’s weird and quirky and a little unsettling and you get the sense that they’re not quite on the same plane of reality as the rest of us but wherever they are it is a far more interesting and fun place. Beautiful harmonies blended with surreal and sometimes sinister lyrics and overlaid with unusual sound effects make this one of the oddest and most interesting albums about, and utterly unique in its originality.If the Mad Hatter made music it would sound like this. 7/10
