Sebastian Faena and Gray Sorrenti fête EP
Downtown tastemakers came together over the weekend to raise a glass to Sebastian Faena and Gray Sorrenti’s newly released EP, “Save Your Life.” The duo, both photographers, came together on the music debut—which consists of two tracks titled Save Your Life and Artificial Irresistible—after Faena’s mother passed away last year. On the emotive song, “Save Your Life,” 18-year-old model Sorrenti sings alongside Faena. “It was a special night,” Faena tells The Daily. “It didn’t feel like New York. It was like being in South America somehow, people sitting on the floor, clapping, laughing… It was very warm and affectionate, rare. It was also the first time that Gray and I played “Save Your Life” alone together, so it was as new and entertaining for us, as for those watching.”
Meanwhile, Artificial Irresistible, was written about Guiliana, a character in Antonioni’s The Red Desert. Joining the pair at Cirpriani Soho to toast to the launch were Sorrenti’s boyfriend Evan Mock, Mario Sorrenti, Eli Brown, Rebecca Dayan, Carlotta Kohl, Jessie J Thompson, Kailand Morris, and Ferdinando Verderi, among others.
