Melbourne’s Vereya heals and empowers with orchestral new single, ‘A Line in the Sand’

Words by Gabriela Caeli Sumampow

The music project from Melbourne’s Dandenong Ranges turns a solo piano piece into a therapeutic earworm.

Melbourne’s Vereya have just returned with their new single, ‘A Line in the Sand’. The track sees the five-piece expand from a foundational piano solo, fusing it with contrasting vocals and ballad-like strings – essentially what Vereya is best known for.

Speaking of freedom from demons, letting go, and moving forward without looking back, ‘A Line in the Sand’ explores ethereal themes, carrying feelings of fantasy and fodder for travelling imaginations. From its opening piano ensemble, the song’s mysterious-yet-encouraging message stands tall, serving as a metaphorical beacon of hope for the year to come.

The song comes alongside a remix by Melbourne micro-house artist Timmus, who found the song’s lyrics to be a nurturing multidimensional light language. ‘A Line in the Sand’ empowered him to grow and heal, something which materialised into a slowed, yet slightly more upbeat remix of the original.

Timmus was “absolutely blown away” by ‘A Line in the Sand’. This inspired him to go to work, creating something true to the original without compromising on the inherent eeriness that makes the song so profound.

The music video for ‘A Line in the Sand’ launches on Monday February 8 from 8pm via Facebook Live.
