Neon Saturdays NEW SINGLE 'Get Up' Out Now

Latvian four-piece Neon Saturdays released their new single Get Up in their home country on April 20th. Following the huge success in their native market, Neon Saturdays are now pushing the track worldwide. On release, the single jumped into the top ten of Latvia's biggest radio stations bringing the band to the attention of a wider audience throughout Europe.

This was a long-awaited comeback after two-year silence and took the local music scene as well as social networks by surprise because of the unconventional yet visually stunning music video that was shot during a spontaneous trip across Turkey.

“Each time we do something, we make sure we’ve raised the bar for ourselves. A new perspective, new sound or previously unexplored approach to music-making process – anything that pulls us out of our comfort zone and makes us focus during our creative process,” said the vocalist of the band, Andris Evelis.

Neon Saturdays teamed up with talented Scottish producer Lewis Gardiner to record and produce the new single. Gardiner has previously made a name for himself working with Ellie Goulding and the winner of 2016 British X-Factor, Matt Terry.

Multiple Grammy recipient, sound engineer Randy Merrill (USA) was recruited to put on some finishing touches. Merrill has previously worked with acts like Imagine Dragons, Lady Gaga, Adele and Katy Perry.
Andris explains where Neon Saturdays inspiration comes from and the meaning behind Get Up:

"I speak for everyone in our band when I say that our music comes from our childhood and teenage years. We’re driven by emotions and impressions we had back then – both positive and negative. The games we played, the music we listened to…

Nowadays we talk about our thoughts and feelings a lot, the four of us – at times we spend a whole rehearsal just falling deeper into a conversation that should’ve lasted no more than 5 minutes. It was hard for us to grow up and now it is hard for us to commit to the daily life because it eats away at our creativity.

Get Up is about us, desperately searching for that wisdom we all had when we were children. I think we can all agree that childhood – no matter how tough or carefree – is not just a string of trivial and ultimately meaningless events. It shapes our personalities and inspires us to take certain paths in life."

In 2015 Neon Saturdays was one of the first Latvian acts to play The Great Escape in UK.
In 2016 the band opened for the British rock band James.

In July 2018, the band opened for the American singer LP (Laura Pergolizzi) in Latvia, playing for 4000 people.

Neon Saturdays' music has also received a well-deserved recognition by Tim Fraser, an internationally well-known songwriter (Tina Turner, Billie Myers), partner of Artists United and a member of BASCA's Songwriters Executive Committee.
