They tried to write a fancy biography talking about theirselves at the third person to describe useless information about past (or actual) bands each member has played in, the band’s that have influenced their music, their favorite TV Series, beer… Well, they failed it. Am Samstag ain’t good in doing what everybody else does, so to put it short, they are a Swiss trio formed on July 2018 and they play grunge.
The band’s MAIN influence is Nirvana, but other bands of the grunge movement have more or less influenced their sound. Am Samstag’s songs are simple, no Guitar hero solos or complicated drum variations. So if you don’t like this kind of music, you probably won’t like what they do. And they understand. Am Samstag’s members also appreciate the technicity of highly
talented musicians like Jimi Hendrix and to listen to overwhelmingly complicated songs from Tool. But that’s just not what their music’s about.
The band’s first EP “ #1 ” has been recorded at the Relief Studio (Fribourg) by Sergio Gaultier and Dominique Poinçot (Dirty Sound Magnet, Donna Zed) under the supervision of Jack Endino (Nirvana, Soundgarden, Mudhoney, Babes in Toyland, L7, Flipper), who will also mix the songs in Seattle. It’s release in scheduled for February 8, 2019 and they really hope you’ll enjoy it!
