about the band
Them Fantasies figures that when you want to create something danceable and relatable, while technical and provocative, you need to meld polarizing musical styles and add a pinch of crazy to the mix for good measure. This Boston-based Alternative/Indie trio founded in 2017 has mixed a secret sauce to do just that. The band's frontman and bassist Dominic Cannarella has musical tastes that differ from co-writer and guitarist Eric McCoy’s—Dom’s is rooted in alternative rock and grunge, while Eric’s, in jazz fusion and blues. Max Meizlish, the third member and drummer, brings a crazily enthusiastic sound to the mix, which gives the band its unique Alternative/Indie rock vibe that has an unmistakably contemporary sound.

Prepare for a caffeinated ride when you listen to Them Fantasies' debut album, Caffeine Queen. An intricate blend of alternative rock, caffeine, desire, and vice, this technical-yet-rowdy album distills the amusingly rude energy of nine carefully produced tracks by a band that draws from a variety of influences like the Strokes, Thundercat, and STRFKR. House/EDM producer Nick Smith of SMLE/Rocket League fame captured the band's Alternative/Indie Rock essence, and together they've crafted it into a very polished and dynamic work of art.
Stepping out of their comfort zone for their 2019 sophomore single, Them Fantasies has given “Acid Anna” a real driving feel that is complemented by a playfully melodic bass. Yet, the slow tempo and laid-back pace of the song makes you think you have all the time in the world to just chill—to chill and follow Dom’s distinctive baritone down the rabbit hole.
"Bastard Too" is an explosive alt-rock song that focuses on relationship hardships and the lengths to which you'll go to make your most intimate relationships work. A song with a classic rock beat, "Bastard Too" uses hard-hitting drums to accent the lyrics while hammering home the conflicting emotions of vexation and personal fallibility.
