Victoria+Jean Premiere Sultry New Track “Takes You Like a Rose” on PureVolume
+ Upcoming SXSW Shows
Divine Love LP Out 4/29
“Mixing a combination of dirty blues, heavy riffs and brooding, melodic vocals, Swedish duo Victoria + Jean are set to unleash a barrel of madness onto the world.” –PureVolume
“Brooding cinematic pop…”– Nowness
“There is a raw grind but an inherent control that makes them all the more powerful…a total originality in an over crowded genre.” – Louder Than War
Swedish-Belgian duo Victoria+Jean have just unleashed their sultry, swaggering new single “Takes You Like a Rose” – taken from their upcoming debut album Divine Love. Premiering on PureVolume, the track showcases Victoria’s smoky vocals, delicate yet backed by some serious muscle, accompanied by Jean’s understated bluesy guitar lines. One of the first songs the duo composed, the song tells the story of “a girl who manipulates with people’s minds, and in someway she’s nearly borderline crazy…it gets to you, and doesn’t leave you.”
“Takes You Like a Rose” is perhaps the bluesiest track we’ll get from Victoria+Jean, but stands as a perfect example of the confident attitude and sensual undertones of Divine Love. The magnetic attraction and chemistry between the couple is undeniable – coming into full bloom on April 29.
Victoria+Jean will also be playing three shows at this year’s SXSW. If you’re in Austin, make sure you don’t miss the unstoppable force that is Victoria+Jean.
