Balloon Ride Fantasy is an indie pop band consisting of 7 members who combine rich instrumentation, vocal harmonies and ridiculous concepts to create fun and interesting songs.

They released their debut album, Monocle City in Spring 2011. The album continues to enjoy a warm reception on iTunes and Pandora, as well as in local, national and international music communities. Rolling 7 members deep allows the band to create a lush and full sonic texture.

A strong dynamic and sense of humor are evident throughout the songs, whose lyrics indulge a ravenous pack of zombies, a fantastical Japanese dreamland and other outlandish lyrical themes, all sung over catchy melodic hooks.

Here are some of the nice things people are saying about Balloon Ride Fantasy and their album, Monocle City:

“[Monocle City] features some tight harmonies and well-placed sound experimentation — Beautiful and largely sleepy; no reason this band shouldn’t take off.” - Pittsburgh City Paper

“…this is one of the best submissions that I’ve received in a while…Their sound was really refreshing when I hit play the first time, the next time, and the time after that, but something about them had me place them on my iPhone…They produced extremely melodic hooks that grab a hold of you…” - LoudSilence.com
