bitbird artist Rome in Silver, aka Vinny Pisciotta, shared their 5-track EP release Makeshift Moon last week. Each track on the EP tells a story of different locations that were used as inspiration, concluding with the “finale.” Rome in Silver has released a handful of the tracks as singles prior to the EP drop which is why the final project being shared feels like the end of a chapter in his musical ventures.
All of his releases within the last year have led to this moment, starting with the first of the “trilogy” – Like Lightning, listen below:
Ranging from Palm Springs to Orange County, Rome in Silver “took in a lot of [his] surroundings” while working on Makeshift Moon, as well as films. He spent a lot of time “watching movies, analyzing them, and coming up with cool concepts for future music videos and/or other projects.”
“…they [the tracks] all have a drastically different feel. You can feel the solitude of the desert [on one track] and the uplifting and euphoric mood of the ocean [on another.]” – Rome in Silver
Makeshift Moon includes a rare collaboration featuring Biicla, and concludes with “You Know,” cleansing and moving on from “a dark period in his life.” River Beats favorite is the previously released “Like You,” a twinkly upbeat electro-bop, though “Colorblind” is a close second.
Rome in Silver is scheduled to play Bonnaroo, and join alongside Hippie Sabotage and San Holo tour dates into this year and next.
