about

Viah’s latest single Samurai presents an electropop combo of producer Aid Kid’s scenic grooves with Viah’s powerful vocals. The lyrics deal with the main singer’s delicate relationship with an elder family member, touching on the topics of language barriers, and the fragility of one’s memory.

lyrics

in the land
where we breathe
there's a fire
there's a fire
and it's burning through our creeks
see the father
on his knees
act of devotion
there's a silence
we are fighting to be free

soon will i see you see me?
confusion in your eyes
the need to guard me — you will feel it
give this rotten place a try
the wisest of the wise

i'll watch you roll your leaves
you megalomaniac
the only grand left in the clan
he's an amnesiac
the nation's samurai

soon will i realise
that you're the nation's samurai
the need to hide it — you will feel it
tell me what's you alibi?
the wisest of the wise

i'll watch as you sympathise
with all these evil guys
bound by emotion — keep my mouth shut
i will sit on standby
the nation's samurai

ooooh there's a fire
aaand it's a flyer
act of devotion
all is set in motion
set in motion

ooooh what a rebel
geeet on his level
what a maniac
all this could easily break your back
break your back

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.
