‘Falling’ is the new single and first offering to UK audiences from the well-known pop-rock Romanian band PUBLIKA, described as Keane meet Depeche Mode, due for release on Friday 31st July.
John Ruscior, the lead singer of the band, is behind the slick production of the track and the haunting vocals.
John says ‘‘When I wrote “Falling”, I had a kind of a breakdown due to a state of mind which was making me feel unsuitable to love and find myself. I believe that each of us can lose their way at some point, and depending on how strong you are inside, you can still rise! I did it by falling in love again!’’.
With a career spanning 12 years, PUBLIKA have earned general acclaim in the Romanian music scene. They have released two albums so far with more than 2000 live performances and TV appearances on the biggest shows in their country. Publika has worked with multiple labels like Cat Music (Sony Music), Media Pro Music (Universal Music Group) and Roton Music (Warner Music).
