"Discover upcoming boyband Roman Road"

Here at CelebMix, it’s a well known fact that we love boybands. From little-known boybands, instrument-playing boys in bands to legendary global boybands, we have a lot of love for them all.

However, just because we already love a long list of them, doesn’t mean that we don’t have room for one more. 2017 brings us a brand spanking new boyband who you definitely need on your radar!

Roman Road are a four-piece pop band from London. Made up of Cliff Lynch, Aaron Richard, David Anthony and Adam Parker, the band first formed in early 2016, rehearsing in Aaron’s front room. Fun fact for you – the band are named Roman Road as it’s the name of the street where they first rehearsed on!

Over the past year, the band have been honing their craft and gaining exposure through live performances. Last summer, Roman Road played their biggest gig yet by performing on the main stage at London Pride, Trafalgar Square, to a crowd of over 20,000 people!

The four-piece band have gained a strong following on social media too, partly down to their series of covers on YouTube. Not ones to stick to the norm, they’ve covered an array of different artists online. From N*SYNC to Sam Cooke, The Proclaimers to Little Mix, the guys certainly have an edge to them and an ability to make a classic track their own.

2017 looks set to catapult them to stardom, as just last month they were announced as a Vodafone Future Breaker, live on Capital FM. Check out their Future Breakers interview below.

Keen to kick off the year with a bang, Roman Road will also be releasing a brand new single called ‘Let Me Try’. The electro-pop track is catchy, fun and upbeat and we guarantee you’ll immediately be singing along! Each member offers something different vocally, which makes them stand out individually. However, when you combine all four voices, you get also something very unique. There’s even a tiny bit of rapping, which we’d love to see more of!

The guys recently had the opportunity to perform ‘Let Me Try’ for Vodafone Future Breakers – check it out!

One thing’s for certain, Roman Road aren’t your average, stereotypical boyband. We love their unique blend of voices, cool styling and the edginess which makes them stand out from the crowd. We’re excited to see more of the guys this year – they’re definitely going to be the new name on everyone’s lips!

Make sure you follow the band on social media: Facebook | YouTube | Band Twitter | Cliff’s Twitter | Aaron’s Twitter | David’s Twitter | Adam’s Twitter

‘Let Me Try’ will be released on February 17, and will be available for download on iTunes.

Roman Road are a four-piece boyband who are destined for big things. Made up of Cliff Lynch, Aaron Richard, David Anthony and Adam Parker, they were recently named as one of Vodafone’s Future Breakers, live on Capital FM. After being recognised by one of the UK’s biggest radio stations, it’s pretty much a no-brainer that you too should be listening out for this hot new band!

Later this month, the guys will be releasing their awesome new single, ‘Let Me Try’. With its catchy electro-pop beat and unique blend of vocals, we’re certain that you’re going to be just as obsessed with the song as we are!

We recently had the chance to quiz Roman Road on their single, how it feels to be a Future Breaker, their unique cover choices, and so much more. Check it out below!

First off, please introduce yourselves individually with an unusual fact about yourself!

David – Hi I’m David and I’m originally from Burnley. Unusual fact, I started my first day at school with a broken arm.

Aaron – Let’s just say David, can’t ride bikes. Hi I’m Aaron from East Ham, and a funny fact I was actually a professional cheerleader before I joined the band.

Cliff – (Imitating Aaron doing cheer) Hi I’m Cliff from South London, and I have an extremely high tolerance to spicy food.

Aaron – Like he’s not even joking, the curries he has are insane!

Cliff – The hotter the better, I should set up my own brand, Cliff’s Curries.

Adam – Hi I’m Adam from Watford and I can actually speak fluent Spanish.

Roman Road was first formed in early 2016. How did the idea of forming a band come about?

Aaron – Me and Cliff went to the same school and it was something we spoke about A LOT.

Cliff – When you see really good bands back in the day like NSYNC and Backstreet Boys doing their thing, you think, Wow I want to be doing that!

David – I met Cliff and Aaron at a party, we were messing around singing songs as you do, and something just clicked and we thought we have something here.

Adam – We all just love music, I came back from Menorca to join the band. 10 points to me!

Cliff – Shame Arsenal can’t get them points at the minute Adz.

Aaron – Ooooh harsh Cliff.

Is music something you’ve always wanted to do career-wise?

David – I actually wanted to be an actor when I was younger, but music has always been a part of my life.

Cliff – Music has been a massive part of my life since I was young. I’ve always performed and sung since I was a kid and dreamt of playing the big arenas.

Adam – I learnt the guitar when I was 8, so this was something I definitely wanted to do for the rest of my life.

Aaron – We’ve all been in college bands in the past, and I think when Roman Road came together for the first time, we knew we had something special.

Cliff – Music is so universal we want to be a part of that.

You’re named after the street you first rehearsed on…did you have any other names floating around or did you instantly love Roman Road?

Cliff – We had some shockers which we won’t name here!

David – We were originally called JACCS for about a whole week…

Aaron – Imagine if we went with something like DAACs…

Adam – I like DACCs, it’s catchy and has meaning.

David – I don’t get it.

Aaron – It’s our initials Dave…

David – (Laughing) Roman Road for us just stuck and it felt strong.

Cliff – We also call our fans Roadies too, so it’s pretty awesome they can share it with us.

Back in the summer, you got to perform in front of over 20,000 people on the main stage at London Pride. What was that experience like for you?

Aaron – It was such a surreal moment for us, every musician dreams of big crowds, and it was just crazy looking out and seeing a sea of people.

David – The crowd were fantastic, I remember us coming off stage and just looking at each other like WOW.

Aaron – It’s definitely something we could get use to.

2017 looks set to be an incredible year for you, as you’ve just been announced as one of Vodafone’s Future Breakers – congratulations! Has the news sunk in yet?

Cliff – We are still on a high about it. Being announced on one of the biggest radio stations in the world, that you grew up listening to, and then hearing your name and your song live on air, it’s just crazy.

Adam – Being noticed by a big brand for doing what you love and want to do for the rest of your life is the best feeling.

Aaron – Our friends and families are just as excited as we are. We are very grateful for the recognition.

Cliff – Also may I just add Kat Shoob is HOT!

David – Watch out Kat!

"A & R Factory Present Roman Road"

Posted on 6th April 2017

Despite dominating popular culture in the late 1990s and early 2000s, the ‘boy band’ genre fell into obscurity as the century wore on. Powerhouse acts like the Backstreet Boys and NSYNC were household names, usually amongst young girls. Though this music feel dated to some, however, it has lived on in various degrees through contemporary acts such as One Direction and the like. The indie act Roman Road is attempting to capitalize on that potential interest, and they’ve released a new single, ‘Let Me Try.’

If you’ve ever heard a boy band radio single at any point in your life, you’ve heard ‘Let Me Try’ The lyrics muse about a relationship that’s seemed to have fallen off the tracks. “Now I’m lost for words, is there someone new?” the band sings. The song is a plight for a second chance, an opportunity for the songwriter to try again with the woman. It’s unimaginative, though, and doesn’t offer anything in any capacity a thousand boy band pop songs haven’t before.

The production of Roman Road’s new single is technically good, offering clean vocal cuts and bouncy electronic-infused instrumentation. It’s certainly not poorly produced, and that’s worth noting because the immense amount of indie pop music in the scene is. There are even tiny hints of hip hop influence when one of the vocalists pops through in that fashion. That would have been fascinating to explore in greater depth.

While the production is functional on paper, though, that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s worth lauding through and through. It’s steeped in Top 40 tropes that make it entirely indistinguishable from any other bubblegum pop. If the members of Roman Road wanted to convey an emotional performance, this isn’t one. It sounds like an A&R rep copied and pasted several generic elements of boy band pop together without any flair for creativity or thoughtful expression.

At the end of the day, boy bands weren’t often overly creative or thoughtful, so I can’t fully condemn Roman Road for being neither. Their music is cookie-cutter enough to convince the listener they might be a well-known boy band. It doesn’t have any technical faux pas, either. It’s just frustratingly bland and if Roman Road wants longevity as an outfit, they’ll have to outgrow this sound - A & R Factory

"Big Top 40 Roman Road"

Cliff, Adam, Aaron & David a.k.a Roman Road are a London based four-piece ready to win you over with their pop masterpieces. Just over a year since they were founded, these guys are already making a name for themselves.

Their biggest moment as a band so far came at the 'Pride Of London' event where they played to a huge audience of 20,000 in the middle of Trafalgar Square. With a die-hard Twitter fan-base and inspired by the likes of Ed Sheeran, these boys are ready to take over the pop scene with their catchy tracks.

Talking about being Vodafone Big Top 40 Future Breakers, the band revealed, "The fact that you send something in, not really expecting anything back. And then you get told you're going to be a featured artist by Marvin Humes. Him announcing our name – somebody who's been there and done that with JLS to come and know who we are is crazy. And just being here today with all of you great people, it's amazing." - Big Top 40
