In the language of musicians, the term “flageolet” refers to an ingenious technique of eliciting harmonics from a string instrument, producing various overtones in addition to the fundamental frequency of that one string.
From the very first note of Seventh Sun, Rudolf Schenker and his Flying V manage to spectacularly draw us into this powerful song in an almost mystical way, much in the tradition of Scorpions classics such as Animal Magnetism and China White.
Once more, artistic elements of this kind highlight the band’s intention to reaffirm the Scorpions’ unique DNA with their latest album, Rock Believer.
Seventh Sun is the imminent lead single from their outstanding studio recording Rock Believer, scheduled for worldwide release on February 25.
