Ontic – Roma

Ontic - RomaOntic 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.

This song is part of our Spotify playl­ist ‘New Synth Pop Songs 2023‘. The playl­ist is updated con­tinu­ously. Follow this playl­ist now and don’t miss any of the latest synth pop hits in 2023.
