Toronto-based band Fast Romantics have a bona fide hit on their hands with “Julia.” This song draws you in from the very first notes, a high-energy dose of well-polished power pop that might have you thinking Nick Lowe circa 1979. For the music video, they edited themselves into some footage from the 1951 film Royal Wedding, starring Fred Astaire. Watch them rock out in a room while Astaire dances all over the walls.
The band still haven’t announced any details on the follow-up to 2013’s Afterlife Blues, but a new album is said to be in the works. They worked with producer Gus van Go on “Julia,” and we haven’t been able to get it out of our heads here at WTMD. Tune in and sing along with us!
