High Down Rocket Test Site

The Low Down

A Question We Posed to Curxes:

Where in the Isle of Wight would be the ideal place to hear your last album ‘Gilded Cage’ played out loud?

"The former testing site for the Black Arrow rocket, which is near The Needles and looks out to the sea. I’ve started writing an instrumental EP inspired by the area’s history. It was once significant for its contribution to the space race and is now really barren, cracked and eerie, which has become something of an unintentional trademark in my songs. I’d also like to contact an artist called Katayoun Dowlatshahi whose exhibition ‘Orbit’ I only recently found out about and perhaps explore the idea of making some short films around the subject."
