Los Angeles, CA – After writing new material for the past few months, VI·ZA is back in the studio laying down tracks for an upcoming release slated for later in 2017. The band, inspired by live performances and raucous crowds after a 2 year hiatus, is excited to head back into the creative artistry and workflow of recording new music.
“We are excited to be back in the studio recording,” stated K’noup and Andrew. “We were inspired to write new music these past few months after some great shows, and we can’t wait for everyone to hear our songs,” they added.
This recording will be an exploration of sounds both old and new, and is sure to pique the interest of both diehard fans and new listeners. With vocals and a diverse array of instruments like the oud and duduk to combine with guitar, bass and drums, there are some exciting possibilities when it comes to both the core and potential artistic horizon of the band’s sound. Song titles include “Cash Karma”, “Viktorious”, “A World of Broken Mirrors”, “Aphrodite”, “Velvet Shade” and “Vicious Game”, representing diverse but resonant themes ranging from satire, continuity and social commentary to raw human emotions like love, loss and passion. Whether it’s VI·ZA’s bread and butter energetic style of pulsing percussion with exotic melodies or experimental ideas exploring the softer side of their art, the guys promise to keep things interesting with fans coming back for more, especially when it comes to documenting their work in the studio.
