What is their most famous song?

Viszlát nyár

The song was released as a digital download on 21 October 2017 through EDGE Records. It was inspired by the death of lead singer Örs Siklósi’s father, with the lyrics depicting the struggle and thoughts of a dying man, along with Örs himself trying to process this loss. It carries an important message: we should pay more attention to our loved ones, as long as they’re alive, because life is short and we never know when any of them could pass.
