||Three Song Promo CD (2008) |
"..Owing debts to the Cure and the Strokes, with nods, too, to classic Motown and Duran Duran, all fed through a synth-pop filter that should support Dublin's aim to make records that aren't "just for cool kids and hipster music geeks that couldn't get laid in high school". With those key markets now alienated, the RR will need all the friends they can get. Their EP suggests they won't lack for them."

"There's nothing wrong with having a bit of musical history...We're in bittersweet 80s pop territory here: new single "Hesitate" even brings to mind ABC and Haircut 100. Half an hour zips by in a fuzz of jiggling legs and fizzing melodies-daytime radio's their oyster at this rate."

"New York City's Red Romance, formed from the ashes of Ambulance LTD...At a skin and bones level, the Red Romance's tunes embody cut and dry musical infection...a thick frosting of synths and simple, hum-worthy lead guitars float atop a solid Motown bass and backbeat spine -- something other bands often refuse to do: accept simplicity. True, turning heads with a common mold is tough, but it's tried and true, and Red Romance showed us why."
"The Red Romance is the best thing since [insert any band name here]. They're the kind of indie pop/rock outfit that makes you want to breakout in a nostalgic Molly Ringwald dance a la The Breakfast Club..."Entertainment Weekly 4/20/07
