Annie DiRusso Releases the Intimate “Infinite Jest”

Up and coming indie rocker Annie DiRusso pours her heart out on her latest drop, “Infinite Jest.” On this track, Annie tells the story of a long distance love that’s turned sour. The artist reps both NYC and Nashville, and you can hear the influences of both cities throughout her music. In Annie’s nine singles, she mixes garage rock sounds with catchy hooks. But “Infinite Jest” focuses on the garage rock sound with an emphasis on the intimate lyrics.

This track excels in its minimalism, focusing on DiRusso’s deeply personal and emotional lyricism. “Here’s what’s worse/ When it comes to us/ You thought you wanted me/ But you just wanted to be in love,” she sings before the song really takes off. The background of heavily reverbed guitar stays at bay until about the 3-minute mark, where it explodes into a cathartic release. Check out this Tik Tok from Annie DiRusso performing “Infinite Jest” live in Chicago, belting as she rocks out.

What “Infinite Jest” Means to Annie

On Instagram, Annie DiRusso shared that she wrote this song in just two days and that it reflects a very specific moment in time in her life. Here’s what she says about “Infinite Jest”: “I wrote this song about being with someone who made me feel small. The process of writing this involved me admitting a lot of things to myself that I had been ignoring. I realized I was with someone who didn’t see or hear me, but simply liked the idea of having someone. It’s also about staying even after I recognized this empty reality, because ultimately – I liked having someone too.”
