"More poetry, less revolt"

ETNO, the rockers from Brasília pride themselves of the independent posture: on the road for nine years, they manage both the creative part as well the all burocratic and administrative matters. In other words, from booking shows to promoting on the web. “We get involved in every part of the process, so we have a deep understanding of being in a band is” sums up the vocalist and frontman, Tiago Freitas.
Three years after the release of the first album “Revolução Silenciosa” (Silent Revolution), the four-piece completed by Iano Fazio (bass), Vitor Fonseca (guitar) and Tiago Palma (drums) releases their second album “Setembro” (September) today at 21h in a concert with free admittance at the Martins Pena hall of the Teatro Nacional (National Theater Hall). If in the first album the main focus of the group we set on strong performances and socially oriented lyrics, the next one let a more poetic side demonstrate a more mature band.
“It was a natural growth in maturity. “Revolução Silenciosa” took four years in the making. When we released it in 2008, we already had a lot of the new songs written. They sound different but it was something thought-out. “Setembro” is even more ETNO”, explains Freitas.The whole discography is available for download and listening on the official website,
Recorded at Midas Studio in São Paulo and produced by Paulo Anhaia (from CPM 22 to NX Zero) the second release justifies the group’s name (motivated by the greek word “ethos”, that defines beliefs and ideals of a people and nations) the eclectic side comes as strong as the passion for guitar riffs and grunge bands. “We allowed ourselves to make slow songs, use acoustic guitars, pianos, orquestras. But with keen on the the poetry: it’s not just a matter of finding what rhymes with love.”
Even though some influences still show - from Nirvana’s grunge to Foo Fighter’s post-grunge - ETNO decided to experiment. And they took it far. On the track “Avisa lá (Nossa Gente)” their rock met up with the jungle beats of Olodum. “There are bands that follow the recipe: name in english, sing sappy love songs for the kids. And the ones that are just getting into rock don’t know anything about the history of brazilian music. So we play our rock version of this hit from the 90’s with the intention breaking the standard” he says. On the second semester of the year the band will fly to Salvador to record the music video with Olodum. - Correio Braziliense

On the verge of releasing their third official album, ETNO bets on a project that blends comic books, movies, theater and literature, taking the audience on a trip through a post-apocalyptic narrative.

A dense and rich rock full of meanings, and a wide musical symbology.
