The deeply personal songs are inspired and dedicated to a brave young soul who succumbed to the ravages of leukaemia at a young age. Recorded over a long period of time in Jed Palmers’ Zalumma Agra studios the collection of songs chart emotions of disbelief, denial, anger and release in the wake of a tragic incident. In honour of this, part of the proceeds from sales of the album will be donated to the Snowdome Foundation: www.snowdome.org.au.

“I wanted to explore the difficult subject matter through music and words with complexity and without empty rhetoric.” explains Vincent Giarrusso.

Featuring a cracking beat, killer horns, harmonies, guitars and poignant lyrics, Everything Was Singing… Everything’s lead single ‘Run and Hide’ is an up tempo offering, paying tribute to the inner child in all of us.

Set for official release on April 22nd through Rubber Records, Everything Was Singing… Everything will be available exclusively through AESOP stores from April 4th and digitally through iTunes from April 8th.

A snowdome of images filmed throughout Berlin, Prague, Conegliano, Dolomites, Thailand and Melbourne are available from April 4th through new delivery platform BitTorrent offering a version of the album in visual format. Unique one take videos for each track are available and offer an evocative and hypnotic backdrop for the songs on Everything Was Singing… Everything.

The visual aspect of Vincey’s debut offering is also complemented with a trilogy of video clips titled The Hungover Guy Trilogy. Featuring three key songs from Everything Was Singing… Everything, the trilogy was filmed by Sean T Barnes (undergroundLOVERS visual collaborator) and follows a hungover guy at different stages of his day, in different parts of the city and country, trying to make sense of a world that makes no sense.

The nucleus of Melbourne indie rock/electronic band undergroundLOVERS since the early 1990’s, Vincent Giarrusso’s rich musical history boasts ARIA Awards recognition for Best New Artist and nomination for Best Independent Release, along with a triple j Hottest 100 feature.

See Vincey launching Everything Was Singing… Everything on Saturday April 30th at The Toff In Town, Melbourne with an all star band featuring Jed Palmer (AACTA award nominated), Zoe Barry (Missy Higgins), Matt Sigley (The Earthmen/EDEN), Biddy Connor (Missy Higgins, Drones & Tim Finn) and special guests to be announced.
