No one could suspect that from Natal, Rio Grande Do Norte state, Brazil, a city known for it’s tropical beaches with white sand and warm sea, the five members Emmily Barreto (vocals), Cris Botarelli (Steel Guitar, Synths and vocals), Rafael Brasil (guitars), Edu Filgueira (bass) e Lauro Kirsch (drums) would put together a rock band with queer sound that is suprising everyone wherever they pass. Heavy riffs, female vocals and lyrics in English once were very unlikely to succeed where they came from, but today they are one of the main bands in Brazil.In 2013 FFA submitted their songs to a contest to play as opening act on a big music festival in named “Planeta Terra” they won the contest and played at the festival, it was their very first gig. Shirley Manson from Garbage (one of the headliners of the festival) saw their performance and made a post about FFA on Twitter and suddenly everyone was talking about them which led them to a record deal for their first album named “modeHuman”. “modeHuman” was elected as one of the top 10 albuns of 2014 by Rolling Stone Brasil, received the best possible reviews by the entire press. In 2016 FFA was selected for the Spotify Spotlight program which picks the 10 of most promising artists of the year in each territory. Since the release of the album the band toured all over Brazil, with more than 200 gigs done in 2 years, including most of the main Music festivals Like Lollapalloza, Porão do Rock, João Rock, Planeta Terra, MADA, Dosol, and the recent Maximus Festival in São Paulo.Internationally, the band gave its first steps ins 2016 being the main Brazilian artist at the SXSW 2016 in Austin, TX. In June 2016 the band performed at the 50th MIDEM in Cannes France and was honored with the “We are the Future” award at the MIDEM Awards as breakthrough artist, being chosen among more the 500 artists from all over the world. The success of the Midem performance called attention from Live Nation France an led the band to open the main stage of the Download Festival in Paris 2017 which took place in june 10th , they received very good reviews for their performance the French newspaper Le Fígaro (check here) and with maximum rating on Kerrang! magazine.Far From Alaska just finished their second album produced and recorded by Sylvia Massy (Tool, System Of A Down, Johnny Cash,etc.) in her own studio in Ashland Oregon (USA). The album is entitled “Unlikely” and comes out on August 4th, the first single and video of the album named “Cobra” is available on all digital platforms since June 23rd.www.farfromalaska.comVideos: "Monkey" 2018 https://youtu.be/PLP3R77V1ew"About Knives" 2015 https://youtu.be/mAJoF5G4Bro"Dino vs. Dino" 2013 https://youtu.be/J1x890Fmqkc
