the Sales Q&A

Your name: 
Daniel Francis Baumer (vocals, guitar).

Where are you from?   
Passau, Germany.

Name of band:
the Sales.

Who else is in your band?
André Braumandl (bass), Michael Bruckner (lead guitar), Kai Stadler (drums).

How would you describe yourselves?
We're an indie band, we make indie/alternative/garage/post-punk music, but we try to incorporate other genres as well.

Who are your main influences musically?
The Strokes, Arctic Monkeys, The Libertines are probably our most predominant, basic influences.

What do you hope to achieve in music?
We want to create something unique as far as that's possible. Maybe we also want to leave a mark or something, but it all comes down to the point that we just want to make music. It's what we love and what we do best.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
In 2013 we went to Berlin for some recording sessions. The results are the recordings of our songs 'No Mas' and 'Coffee & Cigarettes'. We had a lot of fun doing that, as we had the chance to use some pretty rad recording equipment and it was a great experience.

And what's the moment you want to forget?
Driving to Berlin in a small bus (in which we could get all our instruments and the drumset), well, we got a little drunk. And our drummer somehow manged to get some pieces of duct tape into the singers hair. That was pretty painful. Also kind of funny, but first and foremost, it was painful.

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
That's a little hard to say. Our songs are all different in some way, so it's hard to find one that can represent all of them. But if we had to pick one, we'd go with 'No Mas' because it includes most of our influences.

Where can we listen to it?

Where can we find out more about your music?
