nEaTo Fa NeAtO – Sax on the Beach
Listen to the new song from nEaTo Fa NeAtO – Sax on the Beach
Tell us about where you are from and how you got to this position today.
We are outta an up and coming city called Wausau in the gangster state of Wiscomptin. Even though we call that our home of operations, we have several members that drive a ways to jam.
What do you have coming up? What are some of the new projects we can expect to see?
We are in the process of getting our 2nd album together. We were awarded with some recording time from a battle of the bands we were in this summer and we are tightening down on three songs in particular that we feel best represent the direction that people can be expecting to see us travel in. We really want to show people that even though it has taken us a year to even come close to a genre that we can identify with, we have now made up a genre underneath us it will allow us to grow up rather than out. We are also about to release an independent miniature movie/music video with the song “Gin and Tonic” so fans can expect that pretty much any day now.
Tell us more about the current song you are promoting to everyone.
This is a sample of a song that we recorded live so it’s a little raw, but it adds a certain roman-antic feel to it that I think at this stage it needs. It’s a really good song to get your head nodding and just when you think there is no vocals we come through for the voice lovers in the audience. So its a good blend.
How does your music separate yourself from other artists and bands out there?
I wish I could find another artist out there that we sound like so I could describe it in words, but I guess the best answer is that our music is a constant revolving very marry-go-round of whatever genres and rhythms and inspirations we are feeling “that week.” We change our sound completely around sometimes just because one of us has been listening to John Wayne and The Pain and then the next week it will change again because of a really great track that we heard on from Pretty Lights. I will hear a particularly catchy riff on the top forty and the next night there will be a jam out on that riff you know? It’s a blend of music we love playing and music that we know the crowd will love to jam out to.
Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in the industry?
The biggest challenge we have had to face is our location. The fine state of Wisco is just starting to really amp up on the festivals so the scene is getting better, but on the whole this state really only wants to hear midwest metal and hard rock (which is great), but getting noticed by people that don’t listen to that kind of music has been hard. It really stresses the creativity of the band concerning marketing this sound.
What was one of the biggest set backs in your career and how did you bounce back?
We were on schedule to tour through Colorado this summer, but one of the main sponsors backed out and we had to cancel all the dates. It was a huge blow to the moral of the group, but it has given us time to work on our sound and really get ready for this album. We really want to play festivals so we are trying to time this out right.
What are some things artists need to be careful of?
Make sure if you are tarping your equipment on the high way that you run the tarp under the front or it will rip off, but it will wait until it is pouring first. Then it will rip off.
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
Get a hold of us. Lets book some shows together.
What is one of your favorite ways to promote yourself and your music?
I love the Facebook (lame I know) and having jets write it in the sky is always good. but my favorite method is telepathic urges.
Where can people visit you?
I’m usually at my house. If you don’t know where that is you can try Facebook. Or you can Google us because we like to hang out on the first page of Google search. Or our sonic bid or Reverbnation.
