Caroline Romano Would Rather Be Used By You

Rising alt-pop sensation Caroline Romano has just dropped her anthemic new single, Used By You. Over the course of her last few singles – Girl In A China Shop, Tell Her I Said Hi and now with Used By You – Romano has unveiled a bolder sound that blends her pop sensibilities with dynamic alt-rock instrumentation. But, as her sound continues to naturally evolve, her authentic storytelling never waivers. On Used By You, she tells a relatable tale of unrequited love, set to a backdrop of melodic guitars and anthemic percussion.

“If I had to describe Used By You in one word, I think that would would be brutal,” she says. “It’s unabashedly honest, blunt, and real. It’s a song about the side effects of unrequited admiration. It’s about loving someone to the point that you’re willing to move mountains for them, even when they’re not willing to move an inch for you. It’s the fear of losing someone so much, that’s you’d rather lose yourself just to keep them. In the name of being honest, no matter how terrifying, this is Used By You.”

The new tune kicks off with acoustic guitars before tearing into glorious alt-rock drums and guitars, Romano’s honey-soaked vocals poured deliciously atop. “I’d rather be used by you, than you be something I lose” she croons. Listen to Used By You below:

At just 22-years-old, Nashville-based Caroline Romano has established herself as a versatile artist, effortlessly transitioning between misty-eyed ballads and fiery alt-rock anthems.

With each new single that’s followed, she has continued to reveal new layers of her artistry, resulting in some of her most confident and authentic songs yet.
