Haunting. That is the word I would use to describe The Ruins, VISTA’s first record release since 2017. The five song effort, the first of an EP trilogy, delves into the realities of dealing with anxiety, loss and grief.
“After Death” is beyond catchy in a beautifully dark way. I have found myself humming and singing it everywhere since I first heard it. Another stand out track is “I don’t need help” ft. Okan Kazdal, pushing lyrics that feel relatable.
In addition to the release of The Ruins, VISTA will debut a YouTube documentary on November 12th which will show fans why they almost called it quits and why they haven’t released a record since 2017. To celebrate the effort, VISTA has an EP release show at Amityville Music Hall in Amityville, NY on October 26th.
After hearing this newest release I am so exited to see what VISTA does next because they have never sounded better!
