NEOROMANTICS NEW EP “HOMECOMING”: OUT NOW

TULSA, OK | MAY 18TH, 2018 – Based in Tulsa, Oklahoma, rock band NeoRomantics blend well-structured indie rock with emo elements on their brand new EP “Homecoming,” out TODAY on all streaming platforms. The 5-track collection acts as a beautiful contrast of sorts; while arranged much like a pop record, it is far from one. The record’s lyricism delves into an array of personal topics about relationships, including abandoning those that are toxic, growth, and parental influence on trust. “Homecoming” is the perfect display of the band’s eclecticism, particularly the lead single “Concentrated,” initially released in January. A...
