BELLADONNA release their stunning single ‘Astronomer Of Life’ on 15th November, self released on Belladonna Records.
Italian quintet Belladonna are amongst that rare breed of bands whose utterly unique sound has enraptured and inspired fans and followers all over the world and you have, without doubt, heard their music in many movies, dramas and adverts. Yet again they have released another stunning track, Astronomer Of Life’. The video of Astronomer Of Life is synced to a scene of a pre-existing movie, the last scene of the Russian director Andrej Tarkovsky 70s movie Stalker. It is a one-take-only video, but it has an overwhelming starkness, otherworld-ness and emotional power.
ASTRONOMER OF LIFE is taken from the band’s new album No Star Is Ever Too Far. This album already has a distinguished history in terms of licensing, since 3 of its songs have already been included in major movies (The Turing Sniper was – in its original version in Italian – in Remember Me, My Love, the G.Muccino drama featuring Monica Bellucci, Black Beauty is featured in a very touching scene of the Michael Moore movie Fahrenheit 11/9, and the intro of We Belong To Hell is in the international tv spot of the 2017 USA thriller My Cousin Rachel)
“They’ve created a mysterious, romantic, erotic world”- Rolling Stone. Belladonna is a rock band formed by songwriters Luana Caraffa and Dani Macchi. Belladonnaʼs self-produced debut Metaphysical Attraction not only turned the band overnight into one of the most loved unsigned bands on MySpace, but they received thehonor of 2 Grammy Awards 2008 ballot nominations, unprecedented for a DIY band. Over 1.000.000 views on MySpace, magazines like Rolling Stone and GQ hailing them as the “next big thing”, shows with Dita Von Teese at Erotica 07 in London, gigs with Scars On Broadway and Siouxsie & the Banshees, performances at the Dubai International Film Festival, all in the first 3 years of being together as a band.
