Tucked away in Kensington Market, Downtown Toronto’s most culturally diverse neighborhood, ROMES converted the basement of their semi-detached red-brick into their full time rehearsal space. The band relentlessly spent their waking hours there, exploring their eclectic tastes in music and ultimately writing the tracks for their debut self-titled album, out now.
ROMES have harnessed their pop sensibilities into an alternative sound that is completely their own. With soulful melodies and bright, funky guitar riffs playing off gritty synths, the tracks are instant, high-energy, anthemic ear candy. These larger-than-life tunes, backboned by thumping, hip-hop rhythms and disco-inspired bass-lines, put a modern twist on the group’s early musical inspirations.
Having topped Canadian radio charts and earned an international following under the name Fake Shark - Real Zombie!, this beloved Vancouver band has started anew. Now known simply as Fake Shark, the band has cultivated a dedicated fanbase with their art-punk inspired sound and unique and energizing live performances. With the release of their brand new record Faux Real in May of 2017, the band has taken to an indie pop sound, garnering them radio charting at Canadian commercial formats and a wider audience of fans with a more accessible approach to their sound. This mainstream appeal has recently been noticed in licensing opportunities with features in a North American Apple advertisement and in the Showtime original series, Dice.With this latest step in their career, they’ve learned to harness that anything-goes energy in order to deliver the catchiest songs possible. Now that they’ve killed the real zombie, Fake Shark is more alive than ever.
