Brooklyn’s Victoire have high musical ambitions, defining themselves as a chamber rock quintet, an obvious nod to the complexity and richness of classical music. They live up to the moniker, merging electro glitch, pop, haunting vocals, and classical violin and clarinet amongst a plethora of instruments into a unified whole. Earlier this week PopMatters’ Maria Scurr said of Victoire’s new release Cathedral City, “[this] is a sturdily crafted work. While it is easy to meet an album full of dense instrumentation with indifference, Cathedral City is just as much an exhilarating excursion as it is a welcome release from the speed of life.”
