Ro bops to “Mykonos”
Ro drops her summer bop, “Mykonos”, and it’s catchy enough to make you forget about 2020’s cancelled trips. Following the success of her recent release, “Low In The Evenings”, which garnered support from James Threlfall (BBC Introducing) and ShellZenner (Amazing Radio), Ro hasn’t left us waiting too long for the next hook. “Mykonos” is the latest delivery from the electro-pop producer and it promises to transport you somewhere white and blue.
Written in the midst of lockdown, “Mykonos” describes that feeling we can all currently relate to – wanting to get away. The track glides between dreamy moments of ambience and then slaps with a bass-driven punch in the chorus. Tinged with 80’s disco elements, the track brings a new sonic direction for Ro but still stays true to her poproots and modern day references such as Christine & The Queens and Tei Shi.
Producer and all-round DIY artist, Ro hails from SW England and resides in London. A hands-on approach to her music has developed a sonic ID with a signature 80’s touch and a 00’s pop influence.
Last year saw Ro performing at Laylow for Trash Like You Records’ collaboration with The Circle (a charity founded by Annie Lennox) and 2020 has seen her also grace the stage at Ronnie Scott’s.
Recent releases have garnered support from the likes of BBC Introducing, Amazing Radio, Fubar Radio and collaborations have included features with Lucian and LA’s Damon Steele. Ro delves into the realm of electro pop with bright vocals and charged-up, synth-infused tracks, delivering a sound that isn’t afraid to do something new. Travelling with “Mykonos” is certainly better than travelling to Mykonos that’s for sure!
