Sexenni release new single “Houston” the official song of La Volta Ciclista de Catalunya
Sexenni presents ‘Houston’, the first single from their second album, which will be released next September, and which will be accompanied by the Viatge Galàctic tour, which will undoubtedly exceed expectations, as this first one has already done.
After living a brilliant rise last year after their first album ‘Portrats’, which contains hits like ‘Sarrià Boy’ or ‘De Lao’, in this song they recap their experience and invite everyone to join the “journey galactic” particular to the group. If their debut album, ‘Retrats’, ended with the emblem “Sexenni takes off”, now the group continues with the space theme, where through cosmonautical allegories they launch a message full of energy and euphoria where they announce the next stage of the band. Without fear of jumping into the pool and without fear of what might happen, ‘Houston’ is a song to push and youth.
‘Houston’ is a step from Lleida towards a more pop sound, influenced by synthwave, but maintaining the group’s urban roots. The production has been carried out by Pep Saula, a member of the group, with the collaboration of Víctor Ayuso (producer of artists such as Renaldo & Clara and Júlia Blum) and Jan Aygua (producer of artists such as Scorpio and Roger Padrós). The release is also accompanied by a video clip of Gina M. Wandelmer produced by LCD Films.
This theme has already become the official song of the Volta Ciclista en Catalunya 2023. The group from Lleida has prevailed over the other two finalist songs with 53% of the votes, in a contest that has accumulated almost 1,500 votes over ten days .
In this way, ‘Houston’ will be the main song during this year’s Volta, which will take place from March 20 to 26. Among all the participants, a double subscription for Canet Rock 2023 and a leader’s jersey signed by the winner of last year’s Volta, the Colombian Sergio Andrés Higuita, have been raffled.
Do not miss this year’s Volta Ciclista where ‘Houston’ will be the soundtrack in this third edition of the contest, organized by iCat, the Volta Ciclista a Catalunya and the Institut Català de les Empreses Culturals, with the collaboration of the Catalan Academy of music.
Although the album will have to wait until the end of summer, the group will already start a tour where part of the new repertoire will advance. The tour will start at the Sala Cotton Club in Lleida and at the Sala Razzmatazz in Barcelona and promises to go through the main music festivals in the country!
