Lost Map Records are delighted to announce new music from English singer-songwriter Victoria Hume. Her ethereal new track ‘Suspension’ will be released as part of Lost Map’s PostMap Club subscription service and via all major streaming platforms on April 26, backed by exclusive instrumental B-side ‘Trial By Winter’. It represents the first new music from Victoria Hume since the stunning Closing EP was released on Lost Map back in early 2016, drawing strong praise from among others BBC 6 Music’s Lauren Laverne and Marc Riley – the latter of whom welcomed Victoria on to his show for a memorable live session.

Now based back in the UK, Victoria Hume was born in Brighton, raised in Dorset, studied in Oxford and spent several years living and working in London before relocating to Johannesburg in 2014. She self-released her debut album Limbs & Digits in 2009 and its follow-up Landing in 2012. The latter was championed by Lauren Laverne as “really beautiful stuff”.

Victoria’s 2016 EP Closing found instant favour with Lost Map after it was passed to label founder and director Johnny Lynch via a mutual friend and collaborator, acclaimed singer-songwriter and producer Adem. Adem (Ilhan) had worked with Victoria on her 2013 project Delirium, a cycle of songs themed around the complex hallucinations patients have been known to experience during hospital-based intensive care. Outside of music, Victoria works as an arts manager in health and medicine and as a researcher, and her musical and professional lives often come together with remarkable results.

Victoria’s new single Suspension was originally written for The Isle Is Full of Noises, an animation commissioned by Hearing the Voice at Durham University and funded by the Wellcome Trust. The animation was first shown at Hearing Voices: Suffering, Inspiration and the Everyday at Palace Green Library, Durham. Trial by Winter was originally written for Sasha’s Trial, a short film about dementia and mental health devised by Ziggy’s Wish (ziggyswish.com).
