Biography

Like a euro-disco love-child of Giorgio Moroder and Scott Walker, Fantasy Mirrors is a pop band with a knack for melody and drama. Boston’s DIY multi-media emperor and synthesizer-player Michael Potvin and bizarro-world MOR crooner Nathanael Bluhm began writing and performing together as CASSETTE in 2004. The duo became FANTASY MIRRORS in 2007 with the addition of Patrick Dole on bass, and Joseph Wawrzyn on synthesizers. The Boston Globe called several songs from their first independent release, the 2005 ep, Broadway Showstoppers, “would-be anthems” delivered in a “dreamy, Scott Walker-croon. ” The Boston Phoenix called a second, unofficially-released CD-R from 2005, “sooooo good: sad-baritone emoting on some Stephen Merritt/Calvin Johnson gay-cowboy shit plus dry, ersatz-audio synthpunk accompaniment” They has played their subversive pop music for audiences in 11 states plus the District of Columbia. Boston’s Weekly Dig has proclaimed, “If you love electro-pop and haven’t seen , well, then you don’t really love electro-pop.”

“If the New Wavers could have cracked a smile, they might’ve dug this Boston act, who make snaky synth beats and hollow vocals a thing of pleasure, not pain. Especially grin-worthy are the group’s anthemic melodies and remarkably adroit DIY style.” - CNet Editors Pick

“‘Human Beings’ is probably one of the best dance-pop songs I’ve heard in a while, I think the last time I got this excited about something in that vein was The Knife’s ‘Heartbeats.’” – Gavin Holland (Host, In-Deed on XM/XMU)
