Australian Alt-Country Duo, The Anywheres, Release 'Bitter Tears' From Forthcoming Album
By Stuart Coupe.
Dom had been listening to the final mixes of ‘The Anywheres’ record and thought ‘we don’t have a real heart-breaker yet’ and so he wrote this song as part of his ‘write a song every week in 2020’ project hoping Rosie would like it.
Rosie said, ‘it’s perfect, let’s put it on the record’ and then sheepishly divulged that she wanted to drop ‘Treat Me Cold’ from the album because it felt a little out of place...
The only problem was, Victoria was in Lockdown so no-one could go to the studio... So, Dom set about trying to record and play everything himself, hoping it would be good enough... and after a few revisions, in a break between lockdowns, they recorded Rosie’s vocals and then emailed everything to Damian Cafarella, who added ‘real’ drums and did the final mix!
The song is definitely autobiographical... Dom’s ex used to say ’that’s a shame’ all the time ;-
The Anywheres are an alt-country duo from Melbourne, Australia. Their sweet melodies disguise the tension & longing for resolution of their lyrics as they tell both sides of the story at once.
As staples of the Melbourne music scene, Rosie Conforto and Dom Italiano share a combined passion to create their own music as well as performing 'anywhere' and as often as they possibly can.
Dom Italiano is NOT a starving artist! Crafting a new song and searching for the perfect lyric is Dom’s antidote to singing other people’s songs for a living. In an homage to Paul Simon or Willie Nelson, a ‘Dom Song’ will often match major-key music to minor-key lyrics (or vice-versa). Dom recently completed his 9th solo record titled “The Hurt Party” and has also supported many great artists including Diesel, Belinda Carlisle, Jon Stevens, Billy Thorpe and more...
Rosie Conforto, with her bright red hair and equally captivating, diverse, powerful voice is addicted to sharing harmonies, blending voices and making a song her own. Rosie has had the opportunity to perform alongside Aussie legends including Normie Rowe, Colleen Hewett, Doug Parkinson and many more...
The Anywheres will lure you in and take you on an hypnotic journey of love, hurt & heroism.
