Racked during a magical week at the legendary Rancho de la Luna studios in Joshua Tree, CA by producer/engineer Andy Freeman, and highlighted by the likes of Dave Catching (Eagles Of Death Metal) as a special guest, debut of the new born outfit Vast Asteroid is able to instantly bring together the lovers of shoegaze, cosmic rock, britpop and heavier stuff like stoner and desert rock.
Filmed on location in a Viennese bar, the video for second single “Poison Fang” captures the light and the darkness of guilt and freedom.
“Lyrically, it’s a song with several layers of meaning,” vocalist and guitarist James Poulos says. “It’s about the end of things, and what turns out to come after the end. What promises become possible, or even necessary. We knew we wanted a video that didn’t give any room for uncertainty about what you were seeing, yet offered plenty of room for emotional variance and interpretation. One idea that expands to become a meditation.
We don’t feel the need to personally appear in all of our videos. It was more important to us to make a creative statement with a simple yet haunting video that allows the song to be the star and for the viewer/listener to fill in their own story as to what unfolds in the video,” says Vast Asteroid drummer Mark Reback.
Hailing from Los Angeles, Vast Asteroid is a supergroup of sorts, composed of The Warlocks bassist Mimi Star, seminal UK punk-rock band Slaughter And The Dogs drummer Mark Reback and singer and guitarist James Poulos.
Having collaborated on projects ranging from books and screenplays to the first VR report from Aleppo, Syria, singer James Poulos and video producer Christian Stephen knew they could set broad parameters for the look and feel of the video and end up with something distinct and classic.
