A lot of the credit for new South Florida foursome the Cost's mature sound can be pinned on a cool dad. Band cofounders Manny Roman, its frontman, and bassist Nate Molina were middle-school buddies when they started digging into Molina's father's record collection. A transplant from L.A., the elder Molina was an avid new-wave and postpunk fan during that era, and the future members of the Cost discovered that they too loved those urgent, romantic sounds.
