Victoria And Jacob – With No Certainty

The latest single from electro pop duo Victoria And Jacob starts with a click and a whirr and Victoria’s sumptuous girlish vocals. With No Certainty is somewhat reminiscent of Imogen Heap, but with much more heart and an impish quality. You can imagine Victoria as an elfin character, casting her vocal spell and taking you to another world. There’s A War is slow and ponderous, over a bubbling or blipping backbeat, slowly moving, making you think. Finally What’s Your Face follows a similar electro ethereal pattern, but has a wonderful mantra like quality, accompanied by some tinkling bells that really hypnotise you. Lovely stuff.

With No Certainty is released by Voga Parochia on April 5th
