Self-assessing as a meeting between ‘fairy-floss and understated grit’, Ro gives us a raw combination of lyrical cleverness and personal turmoil delivered with a clear and powerful sense of purpose. This is self-affirming, fun-loving rock, that happens to be a little bit wistful.

Ro is here to tell the world that no one has a hold on her heart. She will be the one to take the first step:

“When all is said and done
you’re still here inhaling smoke
from my fired gun”— Ro

F**cked Up Over You, the latest single from Ro, is a mid-tempo indie-pop attestation with a lot of personality: not even the players can handle her game.

Ro is a singer and songwriter from Melbourne.
