Swedish dream-pop trio ViVii release their glorious new single ‘And Tragic’ on January 11th through Dumont Dumont (Ry X, Charlie Cunningham, Josin). Taken from their debut album, which is set for release on March 15th 2019, it’s a stunning return from the Swedish trio.
Speaking about the single ViVii explain, “We had an idea about what this song was going to be about, but under the process it all changed and the song took its own turn.I guess thats how we like to write music, to let the song happen and to let the music have its own way. But the essence of the song is that life is fun and Tragic all at the same time.”
