With lyrical content ranging from heartbreak and misery to love and anger, the band displays an amazing ability to attract fans with emotionally hitting lyrics and beautifully mastered guitars and drums.
The first single from Remark’s debut album is “Wild Run”, which delivers hard-hitting guitars and haunting vocals to create an eerie audial experience that is perfectly captured in their music video, featuring Russian actress Victoria Chernysheva. The song encompasses the general feeling of wanting to escape and be true to yourself.
The second video off Remark to be released was ‘Falling’, which showcases the bands live performance energy while delivering a devastating message of failure and how to pick yourself back up.
Vesna, the third single off the album, is a sweet ballad with Russian lyrics.
