Sometimes plaintive and spare and sometimes incorporating more complex hip-hop beats and guest raps, DeathbyRomy features the dark electronic pop of Los Angeles musician Romy Flores. After debuting the project in the mid-2010s, she released her first album, Monsters, in 2018.
Born and raised in L.A., Flores adopted the stage alias DeathbyRomy at the age of 15. Struggling with depression and instances of bullying, she soon dropped out of high school to pursue a career in music. Her first album was inspired by her experiences over the next couple years as she found ways to overcome negativity. Early songs including "Blood" and "Wonder Boy" (featuring Violet Kennedy) appeared online in 2016. Collaborations with Los Angeles hip-hop artists Glitter Princess and LePlay were among the dozen or so additional tracks she shared before issuing her debut album, Monsters, in September of 2018. It included appearances by Yung Bans, Lil B, and Cuban Doll. An EP, Love U - to Death, arrived in October 2019 and included the track "Problems." ~ Marcy Donelson
