Saetia (pronounced say-shuh) was a screamo band from New York City. It's a mispelling of the Miles Davis track "Saeta", from his album "Sketches of Spain", which was named after the saeta, a religious tradition of flamenco music. Joshua Fit For Battle is the mispelling of the American traditional "Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho". Members of Saetia formed Off Minor, which is the title of a Thelonious Monk composition. Saetia have indie rock and new wave influences.
