“Victoria” was initially inspired by John Famos‘ love for UK rockers and how they sing about love and relationships. It was about no one in particular until the duo played the song acoustically for a friend who had recently broken up with his long term girlfriend named Victoria.
Yes, there may have been some booze involved, but the song resonated with him and he told the pair about their relationship. It lined up well with their motivations for the song and John Famos soon modified the story to match.
“Victoria“ captures the romanticism, energy, and intense contradictory emotions that come with chaotic life choices, like wanting to be a rockstar, and how relationships are the places that experience these highs and lows the most.
As you listen, experience the rollercoaster of thought and emotion, and allow yourself to be transported into that fantasy for a moment.
