Swedish dreampop trio ViVii follow-up a fantastic 2018 – which saw them grab a #1 spot on Hype Machine, and release their critically acclaimed debut EP Savant – with a brand new single ‘And Tragic.’

But “Tragic” is certainly not the word; ‘And Tragic’ is a beautifully dreamy piece that opens with a swirling, soft guitar refrain that leads the way for pulsing bassy beats and a lilted duo vocal delivery that draws similarities to a more ethereally minded (if that’s even possible) Lana Del Rey.

Quite frankly, it’s a stunning return from the three-piece that sets the bar high for their debut album out March 16th. But if this single is anything to go by, we know they can deliver.

“We had an idea about what this song was going to be about,” explain the trio. “But under the process it all changed and the song took its own turn. I guess that’s 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.”
