Broken Romeo – “Stay With Me”


Emotive vocal outpourings and a heavy alt-rock embrace consume on “Stay With Me,” a recent single from Broken Romeo, a project based in Tucson, AZ. Representing the sixth single from upcoming album Infirmus Orbis, “Stay With Me” oozes with a pandemic-era yearning — asking “won’t you stay with me?” within a quarantine setting, calling out for connection within a fervent array of guitar distortion and driving rhythmic momentum.

“I cannot breathe,” the vocals let out during an especially compelling rise, representing one of many climactic moments throughout this gripping hard-rocking success. The “no place left to fight,” arrival into the plea to “stay with me,” invigorates with its palpable quest for companionship within tumult, with the soaring guitar tones rounding the two-minute turn furthering the atmospheric rock immersion. “Stay With Me” is a strong rock showcase from Broken Romeo, comprising lead vocalist and guitarist James Turpin, lead guitarist and vocalist Steve Turpin, bassist Ari Sloane, and drummer Matt Ringnell.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
