Surrounded by Rome's metropolitan soul, the sound of Statale 66 was born in the bedroom of the two young Meozzi brothers: Alex and Giulia. Starting from the passion for psychedelic and early early 60’s rock and childhood love for the cult Italian B-movies soundtracks (Ennio Morricone,Goblin) the two brothers evolved in a more baroque pop direction meeting Mary Di Tommaso as a perfect bland third part for vocal harmonies.
With Alex’s acid guitar riff and passion for wall of sound, Giulia’s minimal and hammering drumming and Mary's vocal harmonies, the Statale 66 fix with the rock revival of the '00's with the first album “Ex Tempore”, produced by the indie label G&M recorfonic owed by the famous actor and musician "Greg” (Lillo e Greg). The trio steps on the gas with the psychedelic component, writing and recording the soundtrack of “IL CASTELLO” (2011), theatre adaction of the Kafka’s novel by Giorgio Barberio Corsetti. From the collaboration with the tv show “Stracult” aired on the national channel Rai 2, where the band play rearranged versions of movies soundtracks, the album “Stracult” (Beat Records) comes to life. The album Is composed by covers extracted from the show's earliest episodes and “Doggie Surf”: an original surf guitar driven song, with Pulp fascination and delirious voices in the B52s style.
