Swiss rock n' rollers Daxx & Roxane have premiered the visually striking video for their collaboration with Deep Purple’s Don Airey, ‘Interstellar’, exclusively on Planet Rock.
Available to download now via Justice Brothers Records, the galactic-themed ‘Interstellar’ is billed as ‘a fast-paced rock n’ roll stomper with an infectious groove’ features synths from Don Airey.
Watch the gloriously madcap video first right here:
Lead guitarist Cal Wymann comments: “Interstellar” is a bit of a mental track and the second single of Daxx & Roxane’s upcoming album. The song has DNR’s definite party-rock vibe but with lyrics that look into their psychedelic experiences. T
“The idea for the track came after one particular event that sent Cal a little off course and travelling a little too far out of this world. The lyrics talk rather loosely about a trip through outer space which takes a sharp turn out of the solar system, and about looking for that someone capable of taking you back home.
“The band spent two days laying down all the instruments and Cedric ended up double tracking his vocals until the early morning of their flight back to London.
“After feeling a little stuck for the solo section, someone had the crazy idea of asking Don Airey (Deep Purple, Rainbow, ...) to help out and it turned out absolutely mental. Don plays the main solo and he also added layers to the song which brought it to a whole other level.”
‘Interstellar’ is produced by BRIT Award winner Pedro Ferreira (The Darkness, Meatloaf, The Stereophonics) at Spinroad Studios.
Additionally, it was mixed by Santi Arribas (The Mixing Factory – Gang of Four, Hotei, The Pogues) and mastered by John Davis at Metropolis (the Killers, Led Zeppelin, Gorillaz, U2).
