Sexy robots and fictitious creatures like the human bird are brought to life through the music of five-piece synth pop/new wave band, Balloon Ride Fantasy, based in Pittsburgh, PA.  The band has crafted a sound of dreamy vocal harmonies that soar over rich, synth-heavy instrumentation and catchy, danceable beats. Inspired by fantasy fiction and pop nostalgia (Prince, Michael Jackson, Labyrinth, Blade Runner) their imaginative lyrics explore futuristic dream worlds.  The group recently debuted their third release, the six-song EP BRF, which continues the evolution of the band’s colorful sonic escapade.
