YOY is the project from the Italian musicians Lorenzo Borgatti, Massimo Borghi and Filippo Volpin, a trio with years of experience despite their young age. Their debut album is planned for 2019, and they describe their work as “an ocean of thoughts and feelings expressed by waveforms.” They describe “Infinite” as “a song about feeling a part of something that doesn’t exist… the infinite vanity of everything means that everything you do is senseless. If you look for someone else’s support, that doesn’t help you. You should make it by yourself – only then, once the war is over, you shall ask for the help of the ones you care the most about. As long as they respect you.”
