Electronic Indie-Pop duo Victoria & Jacob release gorgeous summer track ‘Festival’ as a free download.

 

Somewhere between Lykki Li and The Postal Service, their lo-fi and ethereal sound incorporates indie-pop song structures drenched in hazy synths and woven with Victoria’s sweet vocal cuts.

 

Festival is a wonderfully euphoric track with an uplifting chorus and a vocal line as dreamy as Fleetwood Mac.  Soaked with a sunny ambience, Victoria & Jacob offer a take on dance music that will melt your heart.

 

When Victoria and Jacob both realised they shared a love of Rosso Fiorentino’s painting ‘Musician Angel’ they took this as sign they should work together!  Since then they lit up the stage with The Mystery Jets, Jeremy WarmsleyActive Child and Big Deal amongst hundreds of others.

 

They’ve enjoyed radio play from Steve LamacqJon Hillcock and Tom Robinson and garnered critical acclaim from NMEArtrockerTimeOut, and across the blogosphere.

The single is backed by a wonderful Franz Kirmann Remix

Franz Kirmann is a French producer based in London who creates a blend of organic and cinematic electronica, both as a solo artist and with classical/glitch duo Piano Interrupted.
