Alarm Magazine calls Cathedral City “a striking album that marries emphatic string motifs to minimal yet clever accents of keyboards, clarinet, melodica, and rapturous vocals”
Cathedral City featured in this week's "Best New Albums" on Alarm Magazine!
"Two years of touring have honed the group's dynamic blend of chamber music and post-rock and won over many fans, producing great anticipation for Cathedral City. This cross-genre album brings each separate influence a bit closer to the mainstream, without an ounce of homogenization. Brooklyn's best-kept secret is about to become public knowledge."

Victoire was featured in Paste Magazine: "Both familiar and entirely foreign, the music of the Brooklyn-based band could easily be the soundtrack to your dreams-assuming you are a fever-stricken genius." Click here to read more and get your free track!
