Victoria Reed Wants To “Heal Your Pain”New Album ‘Aquamadre’ Out April 24th via Fisica Moderna Records/ AWAL
New Single Premiering Exclusively via Atwood Magazine
Today, alt-pop singer-songwriter Victoria Reed releases “Heal Your Pain” from her forthcoming record ‘Aquamadre’ Out April 24th via Fisica Moderna Records/ AWAL. The meditative track offers a lifeline to anyone struggling with trauma, as Victoria’s dreamy vocals seem to make the pain melt away. The song was inspired by a type of therapy Victoria practices called Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), where you reprocess past trauma and change the script.

“I imagine that I am healing not only my own traumas, but also those of my mother, my grandmother, and so on,” Victoria says about the track. “More than anything, I hope this song inspires those who are struggling or in need of help to reach out. It’s rooted in my learned-first-hand and deeply held belief, that true healing is possible, even when it feels utterly unimaginable.”
Largely recorded from her home studio in Mexico City, where the Brooklynite-by-way-of-Detroit recently relocated, ‘Aquamadre’ is a ten-track exploration of pain and finding the salve for it amidst the chaos. Reed enlisted Autre Ne Veut to produce the album, and her life partner musician Erik Deutsch (Leftover Salmon, Citizen Cope, Norah Jones) to craft the haunting soundscape, which stretches from sparsely instrumented meditations on healing (“Heal Your Pain”, “I Will”) to victorious emotional celebrations of calm (“Life 2 Be Adored”).
Inspired by Reed’s lifelong study of astrology and tarot, the songs here are equal parts pop and experimental, built off swirling synthesizers, slinky guitars, and hypnotic beats, and Reed’s performances are breathy and captivating to match. At times angelic, at times haunting, she sounds otherworldly, but her writing is very much grounded in the emotional reality of modern womanhood and the seemingly impossible contradictions it demands.

About Victoria Reed:
Born into a Greek and Italian family that believed strongly in both the power of the mystical and the power of music (Reed’s father, Alto Reed, rose to fame playing saxophone in Bob Seger’s Silver Bullet Band), Reed first began writing her own songs as a way of working through the emotional tumult of adolescence. After dropping out of college in Chicago and moving to New York, she released her debut album, ‘Chariot,’ to universal praise in 2016. Vice Noisey called the record “near-magical,” while Paste raved that it “bleeds authenticity,” and Popdust hailed it as “bold, daring, and visceral.” The collection landed Reed dates supporting the likes of Citizen Cope and Mason Jennings, among others, and earned her festival slots in both the US and Europe. She currently lives in Mexico City with her husband and collaborator Erik Deutsch, who has performed and recorded with everyone from Norah Jones and Leftover Salmon to Shooter Jennings and The Dixie Chicks.
