Australian starlet Romanie is back today with a beautifully personal piece of indie-pop on new single ‘Anthony’.

Inspired by Anthony Hopkins’ ‘The Father’, as well as Romanie’s own family experiences, the song’s lyrics focus on the issue of dementia with thoughtfulness and care.

“I remember coming home from the cinema late at night and getting this wave of inspiration. I sat down with my guitar and wrote the song almost completely in one go. We were still in and out of lockdowns and I was chatting on Zoom with my friends from overseas Michiel and Kate who encouraged me to finish the song. The first band rehearsal back, we played Anthony through and it felt like magic to make this song into something bigger with my band, so much fun.” 

The track continues to showcase this rising Melbourne-based artist’s extraordinary work, which has already received praise from outlets as notable as Rolling Stone Australia, MILKY and AU Review.
