Fresh from becoming one of the most talked about bands that played the Tramlines Festival, Bang Bang Romeo are poised to release their latest single, “Revolver”, which finds their sound evolve on from their rapturously received We Were Born EP. In between preparations for the single release, video shoots and radio sessions, guitar player Ross …
