“I find [Lane Moore’s] voice similiar in some way to Beth Gibbons and Julia Holter, a great starting point.” –Five Songs Per Artist
It Was Romance began as the solo project of a girl living in a room full of instruments. Lane did every bit of the singing, songwriting, guitar/bass/electric ukulele/keyboard/synth/banjo/accordion/drums/found instrument playing/electronic melody mixing by herself, creating a genre-spanning mix of garage rock with blues-rock guitar swells and haunting, sweeping vocal arrangements. Now she plays with a full backing band. Her song “Boys With Girlfriends” received major UK radio airplay and was immediately picked up by music blogs the world over mere moments after she wrote and recorded it.
