Curious about what garden gnomes really get up to?
ABC Gardening Australia presenter Costa, takes a surprise deviation in life with a hairy ride down a new and dirty track, in his debut single and music video ‘Down and Dirty’, launching tomorrow [1 December].
Costa firmly plants the love of soil, along with a couple of seedlings, as he gets down and dirty around some of Australia’s biggest icons.
“This is the UN Year of Soils, and World Soil Day is this Saturday (5 December)” says Costa, “so now’s the perfect time to celebrate dirt in all its muddy glory. Soil provides our food, and fibre for our clothes, it’s such an important part of life – we just can’t live without it!”
The song is a collaboration between the much-loved eco-crusader and the EMMY® award-winning team from dirtgirlworld and Get Grubby TV.
The song is a side project, created as Costa prepares for his role as the ever-present and metaphysical garden gnome in dirtgirl’s Get Grubby musical, to premiere at the Sydney Opera House in mid-January.
Hewey Eustace, dirtgirlworld co-creator/composer and Melbourne’s Cameron McKenzie, guitarist and music producer for Mark Seymour’s The Undertow, wrote and produced the song. The music video production is by Mick Jones and Linda Ung from Sydney’s Filthy Look Films.
The song is now available to download at dirtgirlworldshop.com.au and will be available on iTunes and other digital outlets from 1 December. The video, which is described by Costa as “a walk in the park, literally,” is available at https://vimeo.com/ondemand/downanddirtycosta and … if you’re still curious about what gnomes get up to, take a sneaky peek on YouTube at www.youtube.com/user/thedirtgirlworld.
