June 2011: Heartstring Theory

Wow.

That's all we can say.

This month's track is way way different (even from the previous way way different ones) than any of our previous tracks. This one is just Riku singing with 6 of the most amazing viola-players in the WORLD. Now how cool is that?!

Lyrics

how to keep reaching for
the most inmost core
the stuff we're all made of
if a minuscule particle
contains a universe

when the bow hits the string
that keeps this all in place
it ends as it begins
it makes our hearts vibrate

filling the harmony
of a unified theory
macroverse on a string

and we keep looking for
the ultimate score
to play music in ten dimensions
that flows like spacetime waves
causing that secret tension
that makes our hearts vibrate
it makes our hearts vibrate
it makes our hearts vibrate
it makes our hearts vibrate

March 2010: Fade To White

Winter 2010 has been a pretty thorough one in Finland. Especially snow has been quite plentiful and has caused quite a bit of chaos in people's everyday lives, so we decided it deserved a song dedication from us, so we give you a piece of orchestral goodness: Fade To White.

FADE TO WHITE

the world covered in snow sighs in its sleep
all colours have gone and hide in defeat

we wait surrounded by white with our lives on hold
snowploughs serenade outside the window

just don't go outside
the blizzard will try to eat you alive
and cover you with a beautiful shroud
you'll fade to white

white is the wind that rips through the bones
how lucky we are in the warmth of ourhomes

just don't go outside
the blizzard will try to eat you alive
and cover you with a beautiful shroud
you'll fade to white
fade to white

lost in the frost
the season has it's cost
we are in its thrall
the winter takes it all

no don't go outside
the blizzard will try to eat you alive
keeps you in the whiteout
sooner or later it has to get clearer
oh don't fade to white
don't fade to white
we'll be alright in the spring

November 2009: No Connection

Hi everybody!

To conclude our autumnal triptych of holy melancholy, we present to you a track by the name of No Connection, which might lyrically be one of the darkest Viola tracks yet, so it's fitting we're releasing it on All Hallows' Eve.

Lyrics

no connection
can't get through
inside the box
no space to move
stuck in the night
with this lonely sound
there's no connection
there's no way out

isolation creeping in
yet it gets too crowded
within the skin

no connection
time stops soon
I hibernate in this steel cocoon
cut off from life
and the line is torn
there's no connection anymore

when you're left with just your thoughts
captured by the walls
you start to wonder
if there is a world at all
even the boy in the bubble
was able to see through
and the love leaked in
and the started to bloom

no connection
no rainbow
no sky up above
no breeze of hope
claustrophobic inner voice
too much information
head filled with noise

no connection
the line is dead
tangled around my throat instead
communication cut off like claws
of a tamed old beast in it's time-worn cage

but there's a message coming through
I can feel it in the air
how can it be true
if there's no connection
a signal pushing through
emerging from the noise
the air is getting thin
there's still no connection

everyone needs protection from themselves sometimes
so I drift into sleep
when amber light illuminates I am connected
but until then there's no connection
no connection
no connection
no connection

nothing else could get through
couldn't pierce it's way into this non-room
nothing else could get through
what if all this time I was waiting for - - - - -

September 2009: Sea Curtain

Greetings, good people, followers of Viola Music Club!

Sadly, we had to kiss the shimmery summer of 2009 goodbye yesterday as we're now stepping into September and as always, it brings autumn along with it.

So obviously this means it's time to quiet down here at the club as well. It's been a particularly sweaty summer this year as far as our music goes, so it's definitely about time to cool down a bit with some far more mellow sounds.

Lyrics

this must be the end of the play
the end of the way we thought would never change
so let flow let flow let flow over it all
take my hand for the final bow
no applause no curtain call
let flow let flow let flow
let it flow

let it come down at the end of the play
after the last line comes the last wave
so let flow let flow let flow over it all
the weight of the ocean, the deepest bow
leave only the ghost light on
let flow let flow let flow
let it flow
