No Rome, The 1975 sing of fickle young love on “Narcissist”

A standout from No Rome’s new EP, ‘RIP Indo Hisashi.’

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.
