Post Rome’s Latest Single, ‘The Idea of Having a Boyfriend’ is out Today and is set to be Accompanied With a Livestream Performance Later Tonight.
Today, the 14th of December 2020, marks the day that local North east three piece, Post Rome released their latest single, ‘The Idea of having a Boyfriend’. Accompanying the release of this single, Post Rome will be performing a livestreamed gig at 8PM this evening from Motorhouse Studios, Sunderland, where we can expect to hear the brand new track.
Post Rome are a Sunderland based local three piece who consist of Jasper Watson (Bass/Vocals), Ben Goodfellow (Guitar) and Jamie martin (drums). Today’s release comes as their third release this year, following their two prior singles, ‘Different Kids’ and ‘Want to Believe’.
These previous releases have gained support from the likes of BBC Introducing, local station Amazing Radio and ‘Its all Indie’. When commenting on this latest track from Post Rome, North East independent music label, Pillar Artists have stated: “Powerful vocals combined with driving percussion, a recipe for success.”

Post Rome are a band that have known each other for a number of years. The trio met at primary school and went on to realise their shared passion for music later in life. Now all in their early twenties, Post Rome have racked up thousands of streams on Spotify and hope that this latest release will see them to even more success.
Commenting on the meaning behind the track, drummer Jamie martin has said: “This is a song that does what is says on the tin. ‘The idea of having a boyfriend’ explores the feelings of people who simply just like having a partner rather than liking the person themselves.”
Despite 2020 seeing the temporary collapse of the live music scene, Post Rome are moving forward with optimism with plans for 2021 shows across Teesside, Sunderland and more corners of the North East.
