‘All Of You‘ is a soundtrack to the open road, with pit stops at the Cass McCombs, Phosphorescent and Fleet Foxes discographies along its journey. Rolling bass, expansive synths and desert dive piano come together somewhere between Kurt Vile and a Father John Misty deep cut. The accompanying video takes inspiration from the home-movie sequence in Wim Wenders’ film Paris, Texas, and the intimate Super 8 film moments captured in the 1970’s.
Of the track, Irish shares, “All Of You is a song about leaving a life behind to devote yourself to someone you love, and that theme seemed so over the top that I felt it needed a wink in there to get it up out of the ground. Humour is so important in music. It is what let’s it be sad.”
Robert Irish is the new solo project from the guitarist of Sydney-trio Devotional, and the first of his recorded music since relocating to New York City in 2015. Taking influence from past greats such as Roy Orbison and Gram Parsons, Robert Irish delivers music that is tense and tender, with bittersweet humour and country twang. Stay tuned for more news coming soon.
