ABOUT YOUNG ROMANCE
Paolo and Claire are Young Romance. They write about love and doubt and dislocation, wrapping up their words in a layer of fuzz and distortion.
They are inseparable. They live together, write together, finish each other’s sentences and second-guess what the other’s going to say next. Sweet, charming, funny, and entirely self contained, they can bicker and joke with each other for hours on end, splendidly isolated as the world rushes on all about them.
Paolo talks about wanting their songs to capture that moment – that rush – of feeling something for the very first time, and about how your first love is so different, so much more intense, than all those that follow. (…)
One thing Paolo and Claire have figured out, is that together they’re doing something special. ‘There’s not one word that we’ve written that I don’t believe in,’ says Claire. You get the feeling that, to them, that’s all that will ever matter.

ABOUT THE COVERED BAND:

We have encouraged the single-bands to make a cover version of a song they think deserve more attention. Young Romance have chosen to cover “Rose Tint”, originally performed by Lulu and The Lampshades.
Lulu and The Lampshades are no more, but they are…and no, they aren’t… but they were when this song was recorded. Confused? The band has changed their name, and they are now called Landshapes, and yes, they are definitely still playing. A venue in France misspelled their name, and a year later, they took it. Landshapes are currently recording with Ash Workman.
I have only heard one song from Landshapes, and this one had a quite different sound than the joyous folk-pop-style the band have been known for earlier. The first demo as Landshapes is a bit darker and slower than the songs, but still very beautiful.
“Rose Tint” can be found on the band’s single “Feet to the sky” from 2009, which should be available to buy in most digital download stores. Here is a stream of the original:
