We filmed this cover of “Starman” on the Martian looking volcanic island that is Lanzarote during our trip there in January. It was the perfect setting. Every time we left the house it was impossible not to expect a UFO to take off behind one of those outlandish looking volcanoes.
We’ve always been fascinated with space and the question of what could be “out there”, ever since we were little kids. Our dad always used to tell us a made-up ongoing bed-time story over several years. It was about two kids, Johnny and Clarissa, and their intergalactic friends, travelling through the universe, exploring new planets and meeting starmen on wild adventures.
Naturally, that planted a strong curiosity about everything outerspacey and we’ve loved “Starman” ever since we first heard it and were old enough to understand the English lyrics. It captures our feelings about the vast and mysterious universe spot on.
Needless to say, we loved working on this song!
Please let us know what you think of the new “Starman” video in the comments section on YouTube or right here underneath this post. It’s the first time we’ve done a Bowie cover and we’re curious to hear everyone’s thoughts.
Lots of love you all and stay groovy,
Mona & Lisa
