A summer celebration of the choices we get to make, as we build a life one day at a time.

Tori Elliot, who fronts indie-pop band Victoria Victoria, musters up tremendous strength with her glossy and vibrant new anthem Sanctuary. A bouncy groove and synth-backed rhythm section invites us to celebrate the safe space she has created for herself.

Adding to the pristine vocal performance, by the end of this track you will have an appreciation for the synergy between style and sound, as the body language and fashion-flair from this music video come together to deliver a fun and colorful ode to self-care. Something about the sound of that synth-bass, coupled with the B3 over the top and the swing from that quarter-note pulse, makes this song feel lighter than air. Sanctuary, the latest from Victoria Victoria, is a summer celebration of the choices we get to make, as we build a life one day at a time.

I know better than to let you in
This is holy ground
