Opioids & benzos - That would be my guess for the narcotics that these lovelorn tykes imbibe.

There’s a woozy, swooning quality to their wares, like DSR have wrapped themselves up so tightly in a blanket of comforting dream pop that it’s beginning to pour out of their very pores. An oneiric sweat if you will. There’s a moment in the absolutely brilliant television series ‘Twin Peaks: The Return’ where a character pushes off, raising their eyes to the heavens, whilst the car they are in motors along down a highway, ‘The World Within Our Bedrooms’ does an exceptional job of recreating this incredibly tangible feeling. For a hefty dose of serotonin simply stick this record on again…and again…and again…and again.

The Hampshire trio’s boundless oceans of disembodied space-pop offer us a sublime escape into amniotic and ethereal melodies. Drug Store Romeos play with the senses and flip the expectations, finding the sweet spot every time. Lyrical abstractness / concrete meaning / Danceability / lyingdownability / Minimalism / fullness. Introspective melancholy / playfulness / Lo fi / hi fi. “Awash with vivid colours and fluctuating contours, Drug Store Romeos form realms of inviting familiarity that are ripe for exploration” 8/10 – line of best fit
