Victoria and Jacob are an epic and ethereal electronic pop band, owing as much to William Orbit (the All Saints years) and Kylie (the post Minogue years) as Everything But The Girl, Grimes and the xx – imagine Lykki Li singing Christine McVie songs on a hazy June afternoon, or a woozy Alison Goldfrapp DJing a Mediterranean dawn comedown. Victoria and Jacobʼs debut, self-titled long player, released on heavyweight vinyl in a gorgeous die cut sleeve, will be the dream pop soundtrack to your summer; from the sheer joy and exuberance of the first single “Festival”, to the adoring melancholia of “Theia Mania” and the aching longing of “Desire”, all those feelings of first love are beautifully articulated in Victoriaʼs heartwarming vocals and Jacobʼs immaculate instrumentation.

Having formed in Cambridge, the duo have since moved to London and released their debut 7” on Voga Parochia Records. Victoria and Jacob spent the summer of 2012 recording the album at Octopus Studios in Hackney with production duties handled by Oliver Price (Landshapes, Emmy the Great, Lucy Rose).
