Back in January I reviewed the Roommate album ‘Guilty Rainbow’ (see the review here). At the time, it sounded like a contender for one of the albums of the year. The only problem was that it wasn’t released until several months after I reviewed it, so I think I owe it to the band and the readers of this blog, to alert you again of its greatness, courtesy of the promo for ‘Snow Globe’.
This charming promo (made by Roommate’s frontman Kent Lambert), cleverly uses vintage arcade game footage to accompany Lambert’s appealing yearning. Then the pay-off arrives courtesy of a euphoric chorus to soundtrack young romantics. Although it’s the most anthemic offering here, there are lots more delights on offer on ‘Guilty Rainbow’ which – for the record – is still one of my favourite albums of the year!
