Reminding us of the power of the dancefloor, Romy delivers pure joy and healing through euphoric dance-pop and melodic trance balladry.

Rough Trade Exclusive clear vinyl + bonus CD.



The last of the xx trio to define her own alt-pop story, Romy Madley Croft steps into fine form for her solo debut. The producer, DJ and singer-songwriter’s sound, which has been nurtured by her years creating boundary-pushing indie electronica with the xx, now reaches its own singular new heights, where charming intimacy meets perfectly constructed pop.


Timeless trance and euphoric pop melodies make for a love letter to queer club culture and a pure celebration of love and romance. With the help of production skills from Fredagain, Stuart Price and Jamie xx, Mid Air embraces an ache for the dance floor sonically and lyrically, sharing a personal look into Romy‘s own love story and connecting with its listeners in the process.


For fans of: Georgia, Robyn, Mark Ronson, the xx
