let me make one very important point don't worry about the planet the planet is fine we're the problem the planet can live perfectly happy and will continue for billions of years to come very, very happily without us it is we who the planet is probably fed up with running shoot him giant tears they keep falling asleep falling asleep running falling asleep shoot him falling asleep my planet is falling apart my house is drowning my gods are hiding oh please, this cannot be real my planet is falling apart but i'm still awake now my gods are laughing at me i can hear can hear them loud and clear and i'll stay in your way 'cause we're just drowners real drowners fading away every night and day we're fading away real drowners fading away in the water we were warned fifty years ago that what we were doing was unsustainable we were warned that what we were doing was lethal to our own future as i say, because it's been a slow burnisher we chose to nod make nice noises and ignore it running and ignore it and ignore it shoot him i see it bleed i see it shake

dny kdy nám to už spolu nejde mizí jen oheň zanechávaj roky co nás halí do tmy mizí jen city zanechávaj noc odchází a já zůstanu ti stát v cestě oba se topíme vítr volá mý jméno ale já ti budu stát v cestě ať se neutopíme dny kdy nám to už spolu nejde mizí jen oheň zanechávaj roky co nás halí do tmy mizí jen city zanechávaj noc odchází a já zůstanu ti stát v cestě oba se topíme vítr volá mý jméno ale já ti budu stát v cestě ať se neutopíme

about

'Land of Tears' is a compilation of reworked tracks from viah's debut album 'Tears of a Giant' (2018). The album maps all of the individual musicians' searches for relatability and familiarity in the existing songs as they translate them into their own sonic language – be it with sound, structure, or both.

"Out of curiosity, Vi and I decided to play with genres and music habits and approached artists from all sides of the spectrum. We reached out to NIVVA and Never Sol as fellow singer-songwriters, who hadn't remixed music before, to see how they would approach the material. QOW and Oliver Torr were approached because they themselves navigate in lands that are already sonically very different. TAMARA and Rosa (viah) repurposed the original pop bangers into forms they are more familiar with – Tamara covered the blasting 'Drowners' into a Czech summer feel-good song, and Rosa turned the melancholia knob to the maximum in 'Invisible'. And Vi, as viah's bandleader, created a meta-remix of the whole album within one track," says Tasya Nafigina, the curator of 'Land of Tears'.

Welcome to the Land of Tears, we hope you'll like it here.

about

viah Prague, Czechia

Viah is a Czech electropop band. They’re unpredictable, ungraspable, they seem as if they’re constantly on the go, coming up with fresh ideas to keep you on your toes.

With viah, you just never know what might happen. So once you do catch a glimpse of them, you should know everything is only going to take place there and then, between you and them, after which it shall be the same nowhere ever.
