Honest Haloway, Mystery Friends

Washington, DC, 20009
Incredible Change brings you synth-laden wizardry for your dancing feet. Channeling voices from your head and then incredibly singing them out loud. Influenced by Italian house and early Factory Records, Incredible Change moves your body. Incredible Change evokes narratives with energy flowing quasi-hooks, syncopated rhythms, and dashes of chorus-drenched guitar. This sonic advent calendar contains Brock Boss (form. Ra Ra Rasputin), Aiva, Greg Balleza (form. Vita Ruins), Paul Burgess, and Julian Agbro.
After meeting at a lawn mower repairman convention, each member discovered they had a previous freon addiction they had each incredibly overcome. They thus began Incredible Change and went on to win the Myspace Ultimate Myspace Band Challenge © in 2020, only to travel back in time to this incredible year in order to elicit kinetic vibrations and "spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings" that you can channel into your Aether!
Drawing on influences from new wave, synth-pop, and post-punk, Washington DC-based Mystery Friends makes moderately danceable rock music for a time when people need a reason to dance.
Mystery Friends is a band rooted in the Washington, DC-music tradition while forging its own path forward. Since forming in 2016, the band finds its sound from a variety of influences, but they all fit together like a weird, wonderful puzzle. The band has been likened to Chvrches and Talking Heads, among others, but never looks to copy someone else’s sound. Combining powerful vocals, angular guitars, woozy synths, and a funky rhythm section, Mystery Friends makes moderately danceable rock music for a time when people need a reason to dance.
