Croft first announced the solo project back in April during an Instagram Live session: “For the past couple years I’ve been writing a lot of songs for other people, writing a lot of songs for myself. I ended up with all these songs so I’m going to release a solo album under my name,” she explained. “It’s just going to be under ‘Romy.’ I’m hopefully going to be releasing it soon. I have loads of songs and I feel excited to try something new.”
When pressed about the sound of her solo material, the singer said that clubbing was a big inspiration: “I guess one of the main inspirations and things that I love is club classics—Ibiza house, trance music, stuff that you can really dance to but also sing along to. What I realized was a lot of those club classics are big songs as well as just being fun to dance to.”
