Melbourne metal singer songwriter Victoria K has released the brand new single ‘Lacuna’ distributed through Warner Music Australia, which will be the first offering from a debut album currently in the works.
This massive single comes ahead of Swiss folk metal eight-piece Eluveitie’s Melbourne show on May 18, in which Victoria K will play main support.
The single ‘Lacuna’ is Victoria K’s first solo release of 2019 and is about the search for harmony within ourselves.
Lacuna is a Latin word which means ‘missing page’ or ‘missing piece’ and the song encapsulates the feelings and thoughts involved in the search for the one thing we all feel deep down is missing from ourselves.
The video, produced and directed by Gary Robertson (Jarrah Film), brings the single to life and is set in various locations that depict Victoria K searching for her purpose.
A ghostly figure represents the missing piece and guides Victoria from one location to the next in search of something.
The figure is finally revealed to be Victoria herself, suggesting that the real search is within herself.
The butterfly seen in the Lacuna artwork and in the video represents the human soul and follows the search as a guiding beacon.
Victoria K made her mark on the rock and metal scene with the release of the debut single “Monster” in 2016, featuring guitar work by Brett Garsed (John Farnham Band).
“Monster” brought with it radio play nationwide and in the UK and earned Victoria a space among the top five finalists for the 2016 Australian Independent Music Awards and second place in the Australian Songwriting Association competition in the youth category.
In the same year, Victoria travelled to Europe to work with world-renowned vocal coach Terry Siganos.
Victoria is currently putting her learned skills into action in the studio with pre-production for the upcoming debut solo album and recording co-lead vocals with Malaysian symphonic power metal band Silent Angel.
This young talent’s songwriting and compositional influences include Evanescence, Within Temptation, Nightwish and Kamelot amongst other current bands in the European metal scene and her music has been likened to be a blend of these influences.
Victoria has racked up hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube with her own original creations and through featured videos alongside a number of talented musicians covering a plethora of songs.
Victoria K’s covers include Iron Maiden’s “The Trooper”, Nightwish’s “Last Ride of the Day”, Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters” and Kamelot’s “Insomnia”, the latter of which received attention from the band themselves on Twitter and led to a meeting of talents when the American power metal band found themselves in Melbourne on their 2018 ‘The Shadow Theory’ Australian tour.
Victoria K will play main support for Eluveitie at their Melbourne show on Saturday, May 18, at The Croxton Bandroom – tickets out now here. “Lacuna” is out now, distributed in Australia and New Zealand by Warner Music Australia and available through iTunes & Apple Music/Spotify/Google Play and all good online stores and streaming outlets.
