With a serious debt to '80s new wave as well as the deep bass grooves of disco, this band is all fun but deceptively simple, creating complex arrangements of both melody and rhythm. Initially, the three founding members of Mystery Roar just wanted to "make it out of Scranton alive," according to an interview with local entertainment magazine Dig Boston. Arriving in Beantown, the childhood friends joined up with identical-twin bass and drum players, Patrick and Andrew Dole, and keyboardist Tia Cariloi to form a synth-pop band with minimal use of computers.
Energetic personal-trainer-by-day front man Nathanael Allan Bluhm and the rest of the band rocked the Boston to Austin showcase and day party with their energetic dancing, hypnotizing beats, liberal use of synthesizer and keyboard alike and yes a pretty killer fashion sense. Even the burly sound guy and security guards were dancing up a storm.
