Deco Features: FREQ
South Florida can inspire people to get in shape, to write books, and go into fits of extreme road rage, but our area has also inspired some great music. Case in point, Miami band Freq. Deco caught up with the band at a recent gig.
STEVE NOWA: "Our sound is all over the place and we just come together and play whatever rages the party."
The band's song "Summertime in Miami" is all about fun in the Florida sun.
CAMERON TROY: "The video was actually shot at my fathers house, obviously were coming up, were just trying to make it happen with the help of friends and fam we just threw a big party got that Miami vibe and that was it."
Singer Steve Nowa has good reason to love the magic city.
Steve is no stranger to the music biz. He's a sound engineer who's worked with some of the biggest names in music including Louis Aguirre.
Steve helped create Louie's autotuned masterpiece "Soup Girl."
Yes, somehow Steve was able to make Louis sing in tune. He's gotta be good.
STEVE NOWA: "Working with Louis was great coz you see people on TV then you see him in the studio where it's kina my environment."
With soup girl a distant memory, Steve and freq are moving forward with a new electronic sound.
STEVE NOWA: "Were working on our new electronic album now which is gonna feature a lot of dance and dubstep."
But we gotta ask, how did they come up with the name?
STEVE NOWA: "It just feels good to freak that's just who we are. A lot of diff promoters and venues will call us frequency but the women always call us freaks."
If you wanna get your Freq on check out the band's Facebook page or you can always catch them blowing up the party in the Miami sun.
