With a musical imagination defined by a background immersed in gospel soul repertoire, Viktoria Vera’s music is fueled by a love for Afro-American R&B music culture.
In 2019, she left Poland to travel to the United States and pursue her music career in Los Angeles. After linking up with a team of producers in the United States, Viktoria Vera hit the ground running with an original sound that emits versatility.
Teaming up with Lit Honey Productions in Boston, MA, in order to bring us her profound new single “Heartbeat,” Viktoria Vera indulges us in a piano forward instrumentation that complements the sweet sound of her melismatic timbres in a major way. The almost ethereal vocal layers leap through the speakers as she illuminates in a reverberated chamber of pure emotion.
Embodying a prevailing spirit through the tantalizing hues that she unveils, we get to see Viktoria Vera in a light that radiates a heartfelt approach to the narrative she reconnoiters before us. The intimate lyrical motifs cement themselves through the themes of having physical signs from our body communicate with us in a universe of intuition. Allowing us to know that something special is about to happen, the themes of love shine in a relatable way that speaks into our very jurisdiction of embraced emotion.
Viktoria Vera proves that she’s all about going with the flow and living in the moment, so a song of this caliber transports those melodies tenfold. Grasping onto the poetic nature of her flourishing croons, we quickly come to realize just how expressive Viktoria Vera is in the picturesque offering of “Heartbeat.”
Welcome back to BuzzMusic Viktoria. We love the beauty that lies in the narrative of “Heartbeat.” With such reflective words being conveyed to your listeners, what moment or story played into the inspiration of this track?
I came up with the Heartbeat when I first fell in love with the USA. I wanted to describe the physical feeling one gets when your heart is starting to beat faster and you feel a huge excitement about a new journey. For me, this was my music career in America.
Being versatile in the music that you create, do you have a preferred subject or sound to instill in your original creations? How does “Heartbeat” fit on this spectrum?
Yes, when I am creating I often channel different vibes and feels, for instance with “Heartbeat” I was going for a sexy R&B vibe, but also somewhat ambient and ethereal such as Alina Baraz, I love her EP, Urban Flora that she did with Galiamatas.
How long did the creative process of this song take to unfold? Did you find it fairly easy to tap into this headspace during creation?
I wrote Heartbeat in literally a few minutes. This was back in 2019 during my first year in the USA. The production process took us a while because I was looking for this particular chill and sexy sound. I can always count on my producer, Dan Searl, he is truly creative and always help me to stay open-minded with different edits and experimental flips during the production process
What is the main message that you aim to send out to your audience through “Heartbeat?"
My main message is to not be scared of your own feelings and also how your body reacts to them. Honesty and vulnerability always help us to stay true to ourselves and listen to our feelings and how our hearts react to different situations. Also, this song makes me feel sexy and free. I want every woman to feel that way.
What's next for you?
Currently, I am working on my debut Ep coming next year. I am focused on two singles dropping soon from my ep “Camouflage” and “Teardrops” featuring amazing rappers Jackson Whalan and Tyler Hustle. The first collab with Jackson Whalan is coming next month so stay tuned!
