Melbourne’s Symphonic Metal singer/songwriter Victoria K made her mark on the rock and metal scene with the release of the debut single "Monster" in 2016, featuring guitar work by Brett Garsed. "Monster" brought with it radio play nationwide and in the UK and earned Victoria K a space among the Top 5 Finalists for the 2016 Australian Independent Music Awards and second place in the Australian Songwriting Association competition. In the same year, Victoria travelled to Europe to work with world renowned vocal coach Terry Siganos. Victoria K is currently putting her learned skills into action in the studio with production for the upcoming debut album.
On the 5th of May, 2019, Victoria K released her brand new single "Lacuna" distributed in Australia and New Zealand by Warner Music Group (Australia), which is the first offering from a debut album currently in the works.
On the 18th of May, 2019, Victoria K played the main support for Swiss Folk Metal giants Eluveitie at their Melbourne show, and produced a performance that had the crowd chanting for an encore.
Victoria K’s debut album is due for release in 2020 and features artists including Michalina Malisz (Eluveitie).
The single "Lacuna" is Victoria K's first solo release of 2019 and is about the search for harmony within ourselves. Lacuna is a Latin word which means 'missing page' or 'missing piece' and the song encapsulates the feelings and thoughts involved in the search for the one thing we all feel deep down is missing from ourselves.
The video, produced and directed by Gary Robertson (Jarrah Film), brings the single to life and depicts Victoria K searching for her purpose. A ghostly figure represents the missing piece and guides Victoria K in search of something. The figure is finally revealed to be Victoria K herself, suggesting that the real search is within. The butterfly seen in the Lacuna artwork and in the video represents the human soul and follows the search as a guiding beacon.
This young talent's songwriting and compositional influences include Evanescence, Within Temptation, Nightwish and Kamelot amongst other current bands in the European Metal scene and her music has been likened to be a blend of these influences. Victoria K has racked up hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube with her own original creations and through featured videos alongside a number of talented musicians covering a plethora of songs. Victoria K's covers include Iron Maiden's "The Trooper", Nightwish's "Last Ride of the Day", Metallica's "Nothing Else Matters" and Kamelot's "Insomnia", the latter of which received attention from the band themselves on Twitter and led to a meeting of talents when the American power metal band found themselves in Melbourne on their 2018 'The Shadow Theory' Australian tour.
