2,5 out of 5

If I say romance rock, most people might think of H.I.M from Finland but there´s another band in this small genre that doesn´t sound at all like H.I.M and they refer themselves as a romance rock band.
I´m talking about Los Angeles based Lady Low featuring Jimmy Sweet - Baritone vocals/Guitar, Eden Lee - Vocals/Drums, Shanel Chavers - Vocals/Synth, Kaitlin Wolfberg - Violin, Corinne Olsen - Violin and Mia Siler - Viola.
Their debut LP "And they romance is dead" is quite dark and a bit uneven, but there are definitely some great moments on the album that makes it worth checking out.
Why not enjoy the baroque waltz of "Bye, bye, baby don´t go" or get a taste of spaghetti western film music in "All time low", the opening track "Goodnight my love" sounds like a gospel choir singing a farewell lullaby on a funeral in the bible belt.
Not my cup of tea but you can´t blame ´em for being average.
Highlights : You and I, All time low
