Vanic has been a long-time favorite, amassing over 80 million collective plays and 21 Hype Machine #1’s, but we’ve been kept anxiously awaiting more original production from the viral mastermind. Today, all that changes with “Samurai,” his newest single featuring Katy Tiz.

Released via The Chainsmokers’ own Disruptor Records, “Samurai” hinges on an uplifting atmosphere with swelling string pads soaking up the background to make room for a swiveling lead melody. The track’s gentle guitar riff and Katy Tiz’ belting vocals reminisce of The Pixies’ famous “Where Is My Mind,” and the organic percussion plays beautifully with the chiming arrangement.

Check out “Samurai” below, and stay on the lookout for more Vanic originals in the near future. Scope the dates for Vanic’s fall tour below, and click here for tickets.
