Romare Announces Sydney Headline Show

Niche are excited to present a very special headline show for one of the most exciting British talents to emerge from the electronic world of late, ROMARE.

His debut album, Projections, is named after a pivotal exhibition of his namesake and likewise explores various elements of American life. The album is in many ways a homage to the cycle of cultural appropriation in America. “Work Song” is a tribute to the classic American and namesake work song, whilst “Rainbow” is a celebration of disco. Projections expertly catalogues the movements of influence within music. The album doesn’t just sample music and vocal snatches, but also other sources such as documentaries and marries live instrumentation with the sampling palette.

With fierce support from by the likes of Benji B, Gilles Peterson and Huw Stephens, Romare’s music has, rightfully, already caused a stir. In the country for Splendour In The Grass and touring the country with Bonobo’s Migration Tour, ROMARE will headline Sydney’s Hudson Ballroom on July 22nd.
