VIDEO: INTERVIEW – Adia Victoria Talks ‘Silences’, Meeting The Strokes

Nashville-based singer/songwriter Adia Victoria is currently on tour in support of her second full-length studio album, Silences, released on February 22, 2019 via Canvasback Music. The follow-up to her critically-acclaimed debut, Beyond The Bloodhounds was recorded with Aaron Dessner (The National) at his studio in upstate New York and covers topics of mental illness, drug addiction, sexism, and all the elements that consume the day-to-day lives of women attempting to make a world of their own. Victoria had to learn how to adjust to her new and more public life that her music brought to her and the writing process for Silences required Victoria to look inward, stating, “I found when I went back home that the thing that disturbed me the most was the lack of activity. Having to deal with myself once again on an intimate level.” The lead single, “Different Kind of Love” has been resonating with music fans and tackles the everyday human emotions of dealing with self-love, acceptance and love from the world and personal relationships.

B-Sides met up with Adia Victoria to talk about her new album, meeting The Strokes when she was younger and more. Check out the interview:
