Liontribe’s LOVE & ROCK & ROLL album was alive with fresh ideas and unexpected twists and turns, so it’s no surprise that lead singer Victor’s solo debut would surprise and excite in so many of the ways. His first single “You Are Beautiful” draws a straight line between Prince and Jeff Buckley with touches of dreampop and Motown hanging around the edges. His falsetto croon hangs above the ecstatic garage jangle, pleading for love. The song holds tension between the jazz chords and the insistent drums like so many butterflies. Stay tuned for the full EP.
