The songwriter and producer of gothic electronica known as Viii has released his latest official EP album, HEART. The EP album contains five original Viii tracks for an approximate total listening time of 22 minutes. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry on the Voodoo Creation Records record label. Shadowy, danceable, and dripping with decadent ambiance, HEART showcases Viii as one of the most intriguing electrogoth artists of the year so far and promises that we can expect plenty more in the years to come.
HEART by Viii also includes his popular 2016 single, Witchlust.
New Zealand's Viii cites as main artistic influences ✝✝✝ (Crosses), Nine Inch Nails, Puscifer, Banks, Etta Bond, Massive Attack, and Portishead. Viii's own sound takes elements from each of these and adds something fresh and unique for a result unlike anything today's music fans have heard before. With an emphasis on passionate melodies, an evocative tone, and utter lyric earnestness, HEART by Viii has a little something for every avid gothic electronica listener.
Commenting on the overall meaning of HEART, Viii says, “This EP is a kind of self-reflection upon different relationships I've had, written from different perspectives and abstracted in different ways.”
Asked to describe his goals for HEART, Viii writes, “I tried to create a dynamic sound with contrasting elements to help tell some of the stories from my life over the past few years. This EP is also the first in a series of three and will pave the way for the next one, Mind, which will touch on some other aspects of life.”
Multi-talented music artist, Viii gets his hands dirty in nearly every aspect of his craft, including but not limited to photography, graphic design, makeup, and even fashion design.
When asked if they had a message for their listeners, Viii commented "I generally create music with myself as the primary audience. I produce what I love to listen to myself, though I also love to hear when people discover my creations so please reach out if you like what you've discovered!".
HEART by Viii on the Voodoo Creation Records label is available from over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now. Get in early, gothic electronica fans.
