Bio

Paul Suares is Victor Y. His neurosis with music began at ten, a trained drummer growing in live bands across the borders of heavy metal and wistful folk. Realising the potential to curate infinite textures, he found infatuation and prowess in electronic production.

Collaboration and diversification is at the heart of the Victor Y project. Unconfined, tracks are often produced live with musicians in the studio, merging innovative sounds with sincere organic talent for mercurial energies. From delicate chillwave through deep and driving techno, Victor Y’s sound is versatile and holistic with mood, people, and place. His sweeping ethereal morphing, rooted by rhythm, can bring the burliest of men to their knees.

Launching the project in 2014, Suares’ debut single ‘Black Light’ consistently held top positions across the electronic and overall Triple J unearthed charts, and featured in Veronika Maine’s 2014 winter campaign. Releasing tracks on Get Loaded and Discombobulation Records, he is also currently in works with Alpha + Omega and furthering his scope. Victor Y’s unique live sets have torn strings across outdoor and indoor events across Australia; including performances at Subsonic Music Festival, Rabbits Eat Lettuce Festival and supporting Sebastian Leger and Martin Garcia.

The percussion on this song is next level. All those different sounds and textures really make this one.

Great production here, lots of cut up rhythms and layered sounds. No surprise that this is music made by a drummer, the percussion is really key. Nice work by vocalist Elyse Beer too.

There are some really clever sounds woven into this tune. Particularly impressed with the gradual build up and the nimble vocal cuts.
