The band members are four guys from Lithuania, a country sitting right at Europe’s geographical centre.
The Roop certainly take their work seriously. This new, fresh-sounding pop rock band released their debut single “Be Mine” in November of 2014 but don’t be mistaken – they’re far from being inexperienced. They spent almost four years in the studio looking for that perfect sound - writing 50 songs in the process before finally deciding on 10 or 12 good enough for their debut album.
All members of the band have been previously active in other music-related projects and the lead singer is also known as a TV host and an actor.
The Roop is very much their labour of love. „We didn’t rush things. We just gathered to try and create music that we would be satisfied with, as opposed to some hit-and-miss stuff we were separately playing in the past“, lead singer Vaidotas Valiukevicius explains.
An extra touch was added by Australian Leon Zervos – top mastering engineer who has worked with INXS, Aerosmith, Muse and many other music’s biggest names.
