This week was a really tough one for me. The heat was a killer with temperatures here in London getting up to and over 30°C. It was enough for me and my pasty Irish skin to buy a UV umbrella to try and get away from some of the sunlight. (Just got an idea for another blog post).

What people don’t tell you is that when you’re away on your holibobs, well, that’s lovely. But, when you’re trying to do your daily 9-5 it’s really tiring.

For these reasons, this week I decided to play some songs that remind me of summer, even though they may not have been released in summertime.

On this week’s show we headed to Toronto, to speak with Andrew Keyes from Canadian based Irish band, Romes.

Interview with Andrew Keyes from Romes

I first heard about an Irish band in Toronto way back in 2011. They were the band that would eventually be known as Romes. Back in 2011, they were known as Nightbox and I interviewed the band for Goldenplec and featured them on Culture Cafe on RTE 2XM.

Since then, the band have undergone a line up change and while the current members were part of Nightbox, they have a different edge.

You can find out more about Romes on their website, Facebook and Twitter
