Ontic from Australia presents us with "Roma" a synth-pop-dark-wave hybrid that delves into the deep abysses of political intrigue in ancient Rome. The mood is powerful and dark right from the start, and you can immediately feel the eerie atmosphere that pervades this track.
The song is short and crisp, and it hits the mark with its synth hook in the chorus (from 0:36) and the build-up of energy in the bridge (from 1:46). Here, the darkness of a dark wave song and the catchy crispness of a synth-pop track merge with the hook of a modern EBM piece.
The only shortcoming that stands out is the electronic vocal effects, which are too strong in my opinion. A little less could have given the song an extra organic energy and clarity to take the listening experience to the next level.
