Hi! Give a brief history of STEELAWAKE, music style, and the members.
Hi, STEELAWAKE formed in early 2017 and we play alternative rock music. Teo is our lead singer and rhythm guitarist. He’s also the main composer (he writes music all the time!). Daline is the lead guitarist, backup singer and only girl in the band. Guanda is our awesome bass player and Peet is our hardcore drummer.
Give in more detail, some information about Dragging You Inside (SI) and how well does it sells?
Dragging you inside is our first single. It has been released not too long ago, so it’s still soon to tell how well it is selling, but we’ve received great feedbacks so far. It is a powerful and catchy song, we honestly love it.
STEELAWAKE has signed with Sliptrick records, tell more about that?
Talking about great feedbacks, we sent this song to Sliptrick records and they replied to us right away telling us that they really liked it and would be glad to start a collaboration with us. They have been supporting us ever since and we’re really happy to be able to work with them.
What is the difference between your latest and the very first records?
We are releasing our first record in Autumn 2018, so we won’t have the chance to answer this question until we have more records out 😉
What inspires STEELAWAKE music and lyric writing? What does STEELAWAKE lyrics talk about?
Most of our lyrics are about our personal lives. Teo has written many songs about his past relationships. It is definitively a way to vent and heal in a kind of therapeutic way.
Do you play live often? Do you like abroad gigs?
We’ve been playing quite a few gigs lately. We definitively like to play abroad, as it is a nice way to know how your music is received by different crowds.
How often does the band practice and work on new material?
We practice at least twice a week and constantly work on new material in our spare time, as we’re highly passionate about songwriting and music production.
How did the band come up with the name STEELAWAKE and tell what does it means for you?
Our name means that we want to feel like we’re still able to see what matters and be present in the moment, be awake and in control of our lives. We formed in the basement of our lead singer, and as we started playing together, we immediately felt a strong connection with eachother. We’ve always loved rock music, the lead singer is a fan of alternative music so he kinda influenced our sound in that direction, as he’s also the one who wrote most of the songs.
What does the band plan on doing in near time?
First album coming up in a few months. We can’t wait for it 🙂
