«Founding Fathers have a very pure, 80's synth-pop sound. You know, extravagant synth arpeggios, a furious pace, the whole bit. But, unlike many of their predecessors, they actually understand what to do with them. Instead of just a few impressive keyboard runs, Founding Fathers focus on actually writing melodies worth listening to. Of course, there’s an element of spectacle here, but they have the substance to back it up.» — Jonathan Callahan of Lemonwire
A Brazilian/American rock band formed in Brooklyn, NY and is comprised of brothers Daniel and Kiko Freiberg (São Paulo), Tim Haggerty (Boston), and Danny Dahan (Washington DC).
