Caroline Romano's latest single, Used by You, marks a powerful return for the rising alt-pop sensation. Building on the momentum of her previous songs like girl in a china shop and Tell Her I Said Hi, Romano showcases a bold evolution in her sound, seamlessly blending her pop sensibilities with dynamic alt-rock instrumentation.

In Used by You, Romano delivers a poignant narrative of unrequited love against 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."

The track resonates with raw honesty as Romano explores the complexities of admiration unreciprocated, delving into themes of sacrifice and vulnerability. With her trademark authenticity, the singer captures the fear of losing someone to the extent of losing oneself in the process.

At just 22 years old, Romano has already established herself as a versatile artist, effortlessly navigating between misty-eyed ballads and fiery alt-rock anthems. Her unflinching honesty in songwriting has garnered praise from both fans and tastemakers alike, capturing the essence of young adulthood with every lyric.
