Rise as high as the very stars themselves
SURfACE are an indie-rock band originally formed in Florence, Italy, as the result of the artistic collaboration between Christopher Martinuzzi (vocals/keyboards/clarinet) and Veronica Chincoli (bass/vocals). They compose original songs in an indie-rock style profoundly influenced by the English music scene.
Youniverse (or the Hidden Worlds Within) is the debut album, containing 12 original tracks.
In April 2017 the band released the album's first single, “Something in Between” with a music video directed by Andrea Tani about the relationship between humans and nature and the impact of plastic pollution. The collaboration with Andrea Tani has continued for the second single "Light Shadow" (February 2018) that Veronica has produced with him. The video features two dancers in an abandoned flat of a historic building in the centre of Florence.
Not only is Youniverse a play on words and the title of this album. It is also the idea that everyone possesses an individual (yo)universe with many hidden worlds within it: worlds made of people and places, emotions and thoughts. Youniverse (or the Hidden Worlds Within) is a journey through the images and atmospheres that the music and lyrics reveal. It is a journey throughout our hidden worlds that everyone can explore and make them their own.
The album’s artwork, edited by Elisa Veracini, is the physical expression of this idea.
The cover is a print by Lady Eileen Aston, Christopher’s grandmother, and is the representation of the many hidden worlds that can be found in our Youniverse.
The photos inside the booklet were taken by Christopher in northern Sweden, and represent the frozen surfaces of one of our worlds.
