'Road To Universe'
Deep in space, somewhere in a spaceship, this song leads explorers beyond explorations and discoveries to find the truth. It bleeds extraordinary energy with the rush of adrenaline with a powerful performance. The strong beat directs the traditional rhythmic rock pattern with iconic punchy drums. The pacing of this song brings courage and confidence to its composition. Emotions are balanced in a way that retains the fun yet allows for depth in the message, balanced along its course. The chord progression has twists and turns that keep this song exciting and interesting till the end. Fearless distortion of a perfect tone on the incredible guitars and bass with high gain easily highlights all the best riffs and makes the theme more vibrant and dynamic.

Vocals become the centre of attention as soon as you hear them. The voice has beauty in its human imperfection and natural form, separating it from modern overly-polished commercial, excessively auto tuned vocals. Its unique tone and style will quickly hook you up and will make you sing along. But wait, there is one mighty quality in the voice that is unleashed in this song, it's the range. The voice travels across octaves touching the highest notes possible, pushing up emotions with high intensity. It is truly magical how quickly this song can find a home in your mind. The feeling of liberating yourself from boundaries, ready to make a long-distance trip through false directions and opportunities, beyond faith and beliefs, and finding the road to reality is a journey that this song will take you on.

About Andrea Pizzo and the Purple Mice

The Purple Mice is a group of different artists who started to work together in a musical project around Andrea Pizzo’s voice and his idea to create a concept album about the Universe and some human deepest dreams.


In 2019 Andrea and Raffaella decided to gather their different natures in a common expressive project, in which they cooperate writing lyrics and music, singing and making videos. This challenge allows Andrea to conjugate both his passions, singing and stars, creating and experiencing different musical styles in multiple projects: an album of songs dedicated to planets and space explorations. It also allows Raffaella to create something new, giving voice to some of her verses and form to her creativity in a very satisfactory experience.

The musical competence, experience and artistic skills of Riccardo Morello and Roberto Tiranti give songs a deep and vibrant life, always amazing.
