Needle Drop:
Adia Victoria,
“Stuck In The South”

Nashville based Adia Victoria certainly has a mysterious aura. With just three singles out so far, she’s puzzling listeners as to what she’ll do next. Per her Facebook, she just finished up an album—with an expected release early next year.

Victoria sports an elusive bio with few facts—she was born in SC, built a band in Nashville, released a striking single in 2014, and is quickly becoming an indelible voice in modern music. The aforementioned single, “Stuck in the South,” is a rancor tinged tune that speaks to the South’s muddled past.

The track begins with a lone guitar playing in a pronounced staccato—giving every note a brief moment in the limelight. The tempo picks up and suddenly everything draws together in a mesmerizing rhythm. Victoria enters with her raspy vocals, creating an eerie mood with lines like, “Don’t know nothing about southern belles, but I can tell you something ‘bout southern hells.”

The song grows more gripping with every second and by the time the chorus hits, the rest of the band has seamlessly filled the space around Victoria, giving the track a sturdy howl. Victoria sings through a gritty guitar solo—ending in a roaring crescendo. The track has a haunting melody and unforgettable lyrics, certainly something you don’t want to miss.
