“‘Sleeping’ is about dealing with our raw emotions, fears and isolation. Currently, humanity is divided in a slumber of uncertainty. However, I believe that we can awaken to a safer world of hope, empathy and unification“
He adds “My writing consists of heavy tonal grooves, atmospheric instrumental/vocal melodies and anthemic choruses. Lyrically inspired by my personal views, humanitarian and spiritual movements.”
Vinny says of the forthcoming Elements EP “During the first of many lockdowns here in Melbourne, I invested in completing my home studio. As the stay-at-home orders progressed, I was inspired to write music as an outlet, to help me express my feelings and views in order to deal with my mental health and frustration with isolation. That time was the birth of my EP ‘Galactic Elements’”
Sleeping is the first taste of Vinny’s debut EP, Elements, which is due for release on November 12.
