In case you need a song to help you remember the fuzzier moments of your love life, Manila singer No Rome has got you covered. The 22 year old, who's affiliated with Ryan Hemsworth's Secret Songs label, might still be young, but on "Seventeen," he's already wistful for the romance of his teenage years. "We were only seventeen/ you were lying next to me/ I just wanted you to know/ I was young and in control," he sings passionately over the twinkly track.

In an email to The FADER, No Rome explained that the song is about a friend's failed romance. "Seventeen is where you can do anything you want without immediate consequences, I guess I tried to encapsulate that feeling in this song," he said. I was at my friend's house, we talked about a person and how he fell off. Things we're easier when we were younger, that kinda made me think about everything I wrote on this whole song."
