“You acted like we were to perfect strangers”
Hailing from Darlington, County Durham, emerging artist Viia has had an affinity for music from an early age; being discovered at the age of twelve and honing her pop-based artistry and sound ever since. Making her debut onto the music scene earlier this year, Viia has rapidly been capturing the attention of audiences all over; already garnering support and airplay from the likes of BBC Radio 1. Today, following on from her previous releases Falling and Kill Me How I Like It, Viia is now back with her latest offering as she delivers her brand new single, Exit Wound. Another fantastic release, Exit Wound also gives us a taste of what’s to come with Viia working on her forthcoming debut EP which will expand and bring us deeper into her sonic world. With an exciting year ahead, Viia is no doubt one to watch.
A captivating and enchanting dark-pop ballad, that drips with sentiment and emotion, Exit Wound opens with a slow and melodic piano instrumental that runs throughout the entirety of the track, and is soon accompanied by Viia’s poignant and emotive vocals. A stunning performance, the perfect minimalistic soundscape enables Viia’s vocals to take centre stage and truly highlight her skills as a performer and storyteller. A beautifully intimate and heart-wrenching track, we are drawn completely and utterly into Viia’s perfectly crafted sonic world as she takes listeners on an emotional journey. And told through the power of her dazzling and audacious voice, this is done alongside skilled lyricism that showcases an enviable level of maturity and a focus that few can match.
“Exit Wound is about the pain when ending a troubled relationship. Sometimes emotional pain is worse than physical pain and the scars often take far longer to heal.”
