MTV Upload Of The Week: Total Giovanni 'Comes In Waves'
Total Giovanni is a Melbourne-based electro-indie outfit made up of five old friends: Vachel Spirason, Julian Rawendra, Joe Charles, Dave Reidy and Matthew Hadley.
These old buddies have dropped an absolute banger of a single, 'Comes In Waves', and an even better video to go with it, featuring the band in a black and white dreamscape.
As we near finishing this album we just want to take a moment to acknowledge how long its been in the works... Literally years. In between there have been children, jobs, triumphs, failures, poverty and insomnia. At the end of it all we're still 5 buddies who enjoy cuddle puddles and making music together. We are so excited to finally share more of this slow-cooked creation with you in the next few months. Until then. Stay golden. Xx TG
If you think the video for 'Comes in Waves' is surreal, wait until you see one of Total Giovanni's live shows. Combining visual experimentation and explosive physical performance, their gigs have been known to get people talking.
Total Giovanni have taken this eclectic performance style to sold out shows around Australia supporting Client Liaison, and last year's Falls Festival.
This August Total Giovanni will be starring in the Expo Liaison festival experience alongside none other than "the voice" himself - John Farnham!!!
Keep your eyes peeled as the boys are releasing their debut album this year... and we can’t wait to hear it.
