ROMY, from The xx, releases her solo album “Mid Air” on September 8. As you can tell from the lead tracks released prior to the album release, this album was produced by Fred Again.. and is a dance beat-driven album. In this interview, NiEW asked her about her thoughts on clubs and parties, what inspired her to create this album.
The key word is “dance-pop.” Let’s start with her DJ performance at Fuji Rock, which still feels fresh in my mind. Why was ROMY, who was not even a teenager back then, playing nostalgic dance music from early 2000 now? The answer was directly linked to the production of her album “Mid Air.”
