Describing themselves as "piano driven alternative pop rock", Victoria are preparing to embark on a headline tour bringing their beautifully crafted stadium anthems to intimate venues. Before they stop off at the Bodega on 22nd March, Victoria told us what to expect from the show, their views on Nottingham and their favourite venue in the world...
Victoria will be playing the Bodega on 22nd March with special guests Wild Front, Vega Bay and ELANA - TICKETS HERE
We’re all big fans of your Distant Nights EP in the office, what can we expect from the live show? Are there any hints you can reveal?
Thanks very much! We’re putting our set together at the moment and we’re excited about it. We’ll be playing songs from our first EP as well as some brand new tracks and as Nottingham is the first show of our tour it’ll be the first time that we’ve played some of the songs live.
How would you describe your music to someone that has yet to hear you?
We’re big fans of bands like Coldplay, Keane and One Republic so there are definitely some elements of them in our music. Genre wise I’d say that we’re piano driven alternative pop rock.
You’re stopping off here as part of one of your first UK tours, are you excited and have you heard anything about Nottingham crowds?
It’s our first time playing in Nottingham and we can’t wait. We’ve been to a couple of shows in Nottingham before and they were amazing. There are some great bands from Nottingham so we’re keeping fingers crossed that we can live up to the high standard!
We hear you’ve been spending lots of time in the studio, how’s the recording been going?
A lot of our recording happens in our house in North London which is a lot of fun and we’re really happy with what we’ve been making. We’ll be putting out new music before the tour so keep an eye out for that.
One last question, if you could only play one song in one venue for the rest of your careers, what would it be?
We’d probably go with something like Glass of Water by Coldplay as it’s an absolute belter but it's one of their lesser known songs so we could pass it off as our own. In terms of the venue, it’d have to be the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury - 4 out of 5 of us grew up in Somerset so the festival is high on our bucket list.
