Cool Word of mouth! (TBM Style)

How would you describe TBM to a friend or family? Would you classify them into a genre or style? Would you mention the sounds they use? Would you give brief history on the band? Would you talk about their shows? What do you get most excited about when telling someone about this incredible band?

I still can't figure out what genre to "label" them in..maybe they don't need one! Theyre just so unique . But man I can talk TBM until I'm told to shut up.

When describing the band via word of mouth (or even online) I say to not judge them by the name - despite what the name may imply, they're not a heavy death metal band - and even if they were, they are such genuinely lovely, down-to-Earth people. Their music is nostalgic, magical, dreamy, atmospheric and cinematic and when you listen to them for the first time you'll say 'Wow, I haven't heard music like this before', and wonder why they aren't more well known.

I say that the band don't like to label themselves and span many genres - new wave, dark wave, industrial, synth pop, goth rock, metal etc...they have a big 80's influence, having all grown up in the 80's.

And I also mention, that I know people will say their favourite band is the best in the world but you've never heard anything like TBM's music and even if you're selective about what you listen to, TBM is worth the listen.
