Romy Madley Croft has been best known for over a decade as singer and guitarist for The XX, a band that soundtracked the sad tumblr scrolling of many a mid-2010s teenager. But now, using only her first name, Romy
has released Mid Air
, her debut album. The melancholy bedroom walls give way to prisms of club lights and intimate shadows. Singing more boldly than ever before about queer love, she summons the night out feeling of being both entirely by yourself yet in sync with so many others.
