Track On Sale Tomorrow 8/18
A sleek electro-pop gem, slinky and sexy – Blackbook
VickyT, formerly of rock/pop band Cobra Starship, has released her single “Touch” today via Blackbook. The track is a “sleek electro-pop gem, as atmospherically visceral as it is slinky and sexy -with lush synths, chunky bass, retro synthetic drums and impossibly irresistible hooks. Think: Madonna 1988,” says Blackbook. Listen to and share “Touch” here.
VickyT tells Blackbook: “This tune is all about going back to the person you know isn’t good for you,” she explains, “but because they’re a forbidden fruit, they’re that much more enticing. All you want is their touch even if you’ll regret seeing them after.”
Born Victoria Asher, Vicky-T 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.”
