UK Artist of the Week: Robin and The Goblins

This week we are immersing ourselves in the experimental electro-pop goodness of Robin and the Goblins. They recently released their cosmic new single “Future Angel” and its spookily good if you ask us…

Robin Romo is a non-binary artist originally from Spain. Their latest cut is an eerily atmospheric song that combines both pop, synth, and indie sensibilities creating something wonderfully weird. Inspired by the likes of Kate Bush, it’s not hard to see the comparison when it comes to the visuals for “Future Angel”—the ruffles alone should give it away really. But what Robin also brilliantly accomplishes on this single is the ability to make it both tragic yet playful and we can’t get enough.

Talking about the single, Romo explains, “I wrote ‘Future Angel’ from the point of view of a guardian angel that comes to warn a kid about the dangers of isolating yourself; of course the child was me. One night I was walking home after a night out and went into a snowed-in graveyard. I fell asleep for a couple of hours and when I woke up to the sound of crows and white all around me, I thought maybe I’d died. Turns out I was just hungover, but that inspired the imagery in the song, which I like to describe as ‘Dickens meets synth-pop’.”
