How would you describe your music?
Our Music is based on experimental rock, where it blends ambient, psychedelic, pop, all together to create a hypnotic sound, based on the idea of concept album.
Tell us about how the history of the band?
This project was born at the end of 2015. From me, Joe Peduto and Josh Di Pasca. The idea was to create a personal sound, but that reminded the music of Alan Parsons Project and Pink Floyd. In fact, our sound like the name, is inspired by the song Sirius by Alan Parsons
What are you influences/ musical heroes?
Our Influences come from Pink Floyd, Alan Parsons Project, Genesis, PFM (italian), Led Zeppelin, Mike Oldfield.
What inspires you?
My inspiration begins with the idea of a kind of sound in mind. So from here begins the creation of the song, the music and the sound. The theme of the texts is inspired by the problems of the human mind. Example, hate, revenge, madness, oppression.
Do you write on the road? or do you prefer to write in the studio?
Both situations. On the road if inspiration is a quick idea, while, in the studio, it is more sought after.
What is your favourite song to perform live?
My personal live performance is EVERY, one song of the single on my album.
What would be your dream tour to be a part of?
It could be a tour in Europe for at least 6 months like open act to the great artist.
What are you current thoughts on the music industry?
I think the music industry is too tied to music without a passion for instrument music. Unfortunately there is little room for experimental rock for new bands and too much for another commercial music
What is the funniest/weirdest experience you have had on tour?
During a rock festival in Sanremo Rock, I met Matt Backer, Elton John’s guitarist, Joe Cocker, who will now play with me.
What are your future plans?
Make known my music, live at least in Europe. Hoping to find a booking agency for my organized tour.
