“The London Air Raids” by Vian Izak – A Song Review
Thank you Micah Von of Vohnic Music. Your persistence is appreciated.
For months, we received an update on the progress of a 32-page comic book that is accompanied by music. We finally devoted some time to understanding the project and its music. The artwork and music are both phenomenal. The project is a combination of talents of illustrator Hein Zaayman and singer/songwriter/producer Vian Izak.
Two tracks are embedded in this post. The vocals distinguish the two from the other quality tracks of the project. The vocals of “Starlit Summer’s Eve” reflect the South African origin of Vican Izak (he currently resides in Nashville). “The London Air Raids” is a song about a couple sheltered during the London air strikes of World War II.
Quoting the email content from Vohnic Music:
"Vian Izak, composed of producer Vian Izak and illustrator Hein Zaayman, are releasing a 32 page comic book in conjunction with a two song EP every month from July 2017 to December 2017. The comic book is being released in six installments exclusively available to Spotify users at vianizaksadventures.com.
Vian Izak’s Adventures follows characters Vian and Hein as they travel through the Arctic on a journey of strange and mysterious phenomenons where they encounter African animals roaming the wastes, massive ancient sculptures, solid ground beneath ice and more. The highly intellectual and philosophical story winds through bizarre and complex turns in the vein of a 1940s radio drama throughout its 32 pages."
