‘On a Blue Moon’ is the debut studio album by Independent Saudi rock project Astro Lizard, going to be released on July 21, 2023.
The album’s first single, ‘Cruisin Down the Milky Way’, was released on May 9th, 2023.
The Astro Lizard project started in mid 2022 where Khaled C, the creative power behind the project, commenced writing material that lyrically revolved around space, love, and heartbreak, through the eyes of the protagonist, the Astro Lizard.
This space-themed, classic rock project started the recording processes in October 2022 for 8 weeks, where all 11 tracks of the debut album were completed.
As an independent project, the album was written, performed and recorded by Khaled C in his home studio, however it was mixed and mastered in Germany by the talented Johan Keilig.
At the core of it, Astro Lizard is meant to be an intriguing, lighthearted project that borrows from traditional rock songs topics, but also infuses space themes, both musically and lyrically, without necessarily sounding like psychedelic rock.
Across the many layers of the debut album, inspirations are drawn from bands such as Cream, Blue Oyster Cult, and The Doors.
Within the tracks of the album, escapism emerges as a key underlying concept, where space is portrayed as the frontier to seek refuge in, away from the trouble, heartache and disappointment we experience on earth.
In spite of that however, the album remains positive and hopeful across its 11 tracks which sonically, provide a groovy, bluesy, uplifting vibe.
Astro Lizard is an independent solo rock project started in 2022 in Saudi Arabia by musician and songwriter Khaled C.
Astro Lizard draws influence from timeless bands such as Blue Oyster Cult, Cream, and The Doors to and brings classic rock, and blues, infused with atmospheric elements to sing about love, heartbreak and space through the eyes of the protagonist, the astro lizard.
