Latvian pop heartthrob Markus Riva continues to take his most recent album Laika Upe and provide some Russian language versions of its tracks. Over the past weeks Markus has debuted Без тебя (Without You) and Обними Меня (Give Me a Hug), and now it’s the turn of Врёшь (You’re Lying).
The Latvian to Russian language changes work well, with Markus’s vocals continuing to shine across the track’s icy synth beats packed with a slick contemporary twist on eighties and nineties pop sounds. Hopefully we’ll get to hear these tracks in English at some point as well as Russian.
The Russian Laika Upe tracks follow Markus’s powerful ballad Impossible which we’re still enjoying.
You can also now enjoy the late eighties, early nineties inspired video for Врёшь. We have to hand it to Markus for still producing art and music in these difficult times, when people are craving it as a distraction from the downbeat news that is currently filling television screens, radios and social media. Thank you!
