In a world that is slowly becoming post-covid, we are all itching to get outside and find ourselves again in nature. Luckily for us, Polish-born, American-based singer-songwriter Viktoria Vera has released the perfect track to get us started. A crossover blend of chill indie-electronic tones and lush soul-infused vocals, “The Ocean” sees Viktoria Vera juxtaposing the feeling of being constricted in a major city with the freedom and creativity she finds in the beauty of nature.
When asked about the inspiration behind “The Ocean” Viktoria explains, “When I first came to Los Angeles I felt a different vibe in the lifestyle there because everyone was in a rush all the time; even if you want to stay and enjoy the beautiful view on the beach you have to go and do your work, people are constantly busy there. My new single is about that feeling of longing for connecting with nature as you are feeling the call of duty.”
Speaking further on the track Viktoria describes, “I was feeling lonely when I came to L.A. I was working so hard all the time but when I had a lot of stress during the day I went to the ocean and all of the stress was washed away because of the sea vibes and peaceful sounds. Nature really helps me to understand that people need to connect with their souls and wild side more. Living outdoors is how our brain receives vibrations. It's important we understand how to be respectful of the environment and how you should take care of animals and nature. Sometimes we feel lonely and our connection with nature in solitude helps us to feel a sense of belonging.”
