Song Premiere: Balloon Ride Fantasy, "Welcoming Party"

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, Pensylvania. 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, MJ, Labyrinth, Bladerunner), their imaginative lyrics explore futuristic dream worlds. The group will soon debut their third release, the six-song EP BRF (July 20), which continues the evolution of the band’s colorful sonic escapade.
Balloon Ride Fantasy’s performance highlights include 2016’s Thrival Music Festival, where they shared a stage with The Chainsmokers, Chvrches, and Metric. They also opened for The Naked and Famous at the Feed More Festival in 2017. After releasing their self-titled album in 2015, Balloon Ride Fantasy were selected to play the prestigious National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Show in Anaheim, California. Their songwriting has been recognized by the Indaba Music Community, and several songs from their 2011 debut, Monocle City, were licensed for use on the Microsoft Surface tablet.
Today, Ghettoblaster has the pleasure of premiering the warm and whimsical “Welcoming Party,” which you can enjoy below.
