Celebrating our 16th birthday, this year’s annual NARC. Compilation Album features an abundance of North East talent. Today, we check out the track from Viia. Download it for free via Bandcamp…

The story of Viia’s Falling starts with a guy who didn’t know what he wanted, who rejected the singer’s advances in exchange for friendship. “We used a text message that he sent me at the start of the song and turned heartbreak into a dark pop anthem. It was the first song that really gave me my sound.” The result is a modern power ballad for fans of Adele and Florence & The Machine where a pounding piano riff is stacked on some rolling thunder BVs creating the sort of heavy soul foundation upon which Viia builds an imperial vocal.
