ALLO is our latest single. It's such a fast paced Strokesy little number. We really hope you enjoy it. Sophie wrote it a few months ago and we've been itching to get it out since then.
The name, how do you say it? Hard 'A' and then 'Low'. A-LLO. Contrary to popular opinion it is not a northern abbreviation of ‘hello’ or a nod to 1980’s comedy ‘Allo, Allo.’ The prefix allo is from Ancient Greek and roughly translates to "other". To be honest though, it was mostly picked because it sounded very cool.
Give it a whiz and let us know what you think.
In the last of our re-releases we are giving a little look to that stone-cold beast of a riff Pleasure Point. Named after a bit of beach in America renowned for surfing the song references many of the weird and historic events that have taken place there. I wouldn't spend too long trying to decode it, after all this is JT's loose metaphorical writing - just go with it. The track will be re-released on Friday 27 April, but you can pre-order it now.
In sweet link into the surfing theme of the main tune we have re-recorded our surf anthem Leroy as a b-side - it was last heard on 2013's No Sh*t, Just Shoes. Since it's Friday and we are madly in love with you all, you can listen to it now on the DROMA Bandcamp page. You don't have to pre-order Pleasure Point to hear it, but come on, it's £1.50...just do it.
