romantic states are a minimalist experimental rock band from baltimore, emphasizing rhythm and melody over instrumental complexity.
their sound is spectral, with live drums and drum machines combined to provide a back beat for reverby guitars and washed out, dream-like vocals in their own version of deconstructed pop/rock songs. check out their last album, 'vessels of devils', released in 2013, below.
