San Diego Natives, The Routine, teamed up with Guitar World to release the title track off their upcoming EP, Black Tropics, which comes out on February 26th. The sophomore EP is highly anticipated, and guitarist Russell Ramo shared this about the track and EP, “Afro-centric, fresh, and uplifting, “Black Tropics” is a bright spot on our new EP, weaving American soul with African rhythm and tones. Lyrically it is a social commentary on the struggle for free space to find one’s own identity.”
