The Runaway Five

The Runaway Five are a recently relocated band born of a love of loud guitars, square wave synth leads, and impressive video game collections. They play 'sci-fi', a slick, retro synthesis of synth rock, dance punk, and power pop. The R5 blend guitar-driven rock, Nintendo Gameboys, and hook-filled dance music with a nostalgic sense of pop -- the kind of music someone in an 80s movie might have imagined people would listen to in the future. Influenced by The Talking Heads, The Cars, and 8-bit battle music.
