Sydney-based singer-producer Marco Vella has just unveiled details on his debut full-length record Shadow Mountain - a multimedia team-up with American visual artist Kyle Jorgensen. The first taste of the record comes in the form of "Why", a brooding night-time groove steeped in heady introspection, premiering today exclusively on THUMP.

Shadow Mountain is slated for release August 14 through nascent imprint Average Negative, a stable which aims to foster cross-platform works such as Vella and Jorgenson's collaborative full-length. On the team-up, Vella states "Discovering Kyle's work and re-listening to the songs I was writing, I was convinced of the aesthetic similarities between our art."
