Latvia-based alternative rock band Neon Saturdays was first noticed last year after the release of their critically acclaimed self-titled debut album. Singles „Here I Am” and „What About You” both of which received noticeable attention from local radio stations were also praised by Tim Fraser – a world-renowned songwriter for Tina Turner, Billie Myers and a member of BASCA’s Songwriters Executive Committee. This year for the first time Neon Saturdays is set to play The Great Escape festival in Brighton, UK which is a huge step for the northern-european four-piece band since previously TGE has hosted such well-known artists as Mumford & Sons, Tom Odell, Bastille, Kasabian, Chvrches and each year representatives from huge record lables, notable music critics and music lovers from all over the world are brought togeather in the small town on the south coast of England. The festival takes place May 14-16.
Before heading off to England Neon Saturdays is to release their new single/music video Save Your Lies on May 7. „The song is about conflict in each of us. It is about modern times and the struggles we face to better ourselves. I’ve seen people willing to break themselves just so they can get out of it all and find happiness in these rather dreary days… But I must say – I’ve been inspired,” says the singer Andris Evelis. Save Your Lies will be the first single from the band’s upcoming second album which is to be released in 2016.
Latvian rock band Neon Saturdays was established in 2012. The band’s work has been influenced by indie/alternative rock and electronic music. During the first year of activity the band produced their self-titled debut album, two singles (Tomorrow, Awake), toured UK/ Baltic states and had the video for “Tomorrow” go into rotation on Baltic music channels.
