The Runaway Five are a band born in the desert and living in the city of Chicago. A love of loud guitars, square wave synth leads, and impressive video game collections brought these kids together. They play sci-fi music. The R5 blend consists of guitar-driven rock, Nintendo Gameboys, and hook-filled dance music– 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, The Runaway Five many recordings available at!
