Ever dated someone only to realize you’re falling out of love with them? If you’ve experienced that struggle, “Narcissist” by No Rome and The 1975 is a song for you.
Rising musician Rome Gomez paints a portrait of fickle young love in the 21st century, archly delivering wry lines: “Now Selena won’t be friends with me / I was kissing Emily / I love you, it was never your fault.”
The 1975 frontman Matt Healy supplies the emotional heft on his verse: “You know I want you to be happy / Said been seeing somebody / And then maybe we can get on with it.”
“Narcissist” is the most radio-friendly, pop-forward track of No Rome’s fresh, all-too-short RIP Indo Hisashi, which the Filipino singer dropped yesterday. The EP is a product of a tight artistic friendship with Healy, who co-produced it with The 1975 bandmate George Daniel and even got No Rome signed to their record label, Dirty Hit.
