Watch + Share Video for “Ghost” Here
This is synth-pop at its peak – Baeble Music
VickyT, formerly of rock/pop band Cobra Starship, has released her single “Ghost” today via Baeble Music. The tracks “infectious melody sounds effortless,” says Baeble, “it’s a pop song, but there’s a unique edge to it.” Watch and share the video here and stream the track here.
VickyT tells Baeble: “Ghost” is a song I wrote after returning to London for the first time since a breakup. Every corner, every building reminded me of my ex and I kept mistaking other people for him. It was a really hard time for me but resulted in this song which is one of my favorite tracks. I made this track with two wonderful people I love madly in Amsterdam: Jantine Heij and Henk Jan Kooistra. Their talent really brought the song to life.”
Born Victoria Asher, VickyT grew up in a highly creative environment with her father, multiple-Grammy-winning producer/manager/musician Peter Asher, and mother Wendy Worth, a respected art curator. Half-English and half-American, growing up steeped in music, books, films and painting, Victoria has enjoyed a varied and exciting creative life thus far, defying definition and description – and she now looks to make her mark on the world with her infectious Synth Pop. As expected given her background, VickyT is a renaissance woman. She has a hand in all aspects of her work—songwriting, music production, vocals, and even directing her own music videos. The visual accompaniment is a huge part of her creative expression.
Before taking her first musical steps, she studied film at Tisch at NYU and honed her skills working with acclaimed directors like Michel Gondry and Terry Gilliam. Then, she joined Cobra Starship (singing and playing keytar), enjoying several years of successful recording, touring and directing several of the band’s videos. Moreover, she worked with director Thomas Cobb in creating the highly-lauded title sequence for Orange is the New Black and sang backup on a couple of successful records for other artists (varying from Miguel to Steve Martin & Edie Brickell) among numerous other video and musical projects.
Adding fuel to the fire of her new artist project, she has partnered with her father Peter Asher and music industry veteran Sean Glass to co-found Muted Color, a new independent record label. Thus far she has released three singles – “Protect This Love”, “Push Comes to Shove” featuring Panic at the Disco’s Jon Walker and “Clouds.”
