A new year is here and with it, a new Aviana song + video.
The band, now led solely by vocalist Joel Holmqvist, has shared the video for the new single “Obsession.” Watch it here.
In March 2020, all previous members of this Swedish band announced their departure from Aviana to focus on other things in life. Since then, Holmqvist has kept the band going by releasing four critically acclaimed singles via Arising Empire in 2021.
Holmqvist states, “The next chapter of Aviana is here. Let it be known!”
He goes deeper, saying, “The lyrics of this song are a bit more on the emotional side and it is a subject that I personally feel we should talk a lot more about. We wanted to visualize that — not only with the lyrics but also bring it to life in the video.”
Also, the band’s melodic metalcore sound is wholly evident. While no new album has been announced, the band keeps sharing material to keep excitement high.
“The previous single ‘Overcome’ was really experimental and fun, but this new song is closer to the more mature sound that we are trying to approach for this record,” Holmqvist also shares.
