about

The 5th album by coastal art rockers - Victoriana Gaye “The Freest of the Free”. Recorded in the hills above Mullumbimby in the Winter of 2016. Songs about Love, flood babies, finding your own true gang and the inherited weight of the future of our planet.
Freest of the Free see’s Victoriana Gaye taking a completely different approach. Acoustic guitar, electric guitar, trumpet and shared lead-harmony singing is still the backbone of the Victoriana Gaye sound, but added to this for the first time the Northern Rivers rhythm section of Dave Sanders on drums and Thierry Fossemalle on bass, and the production of Christian Pyle, and the net result is something real and true.
Vicki and Jeff write all the songs together and cite their influences as jazz, classic movie soundtracks, psychedelia and their own blend of indie/folk/rock.

Track Name: River Baby Love
RIVER BABY LOVE

We’ve got some friends out on the road,
 they give us a bed, right in their homes - yeah you know they do,
Told us a tale, of how the river rose.
 Cut the town in two, does anybody know - will it be a long-long time?

Rained on down, rained all night, rained all day.
Till they knew, that they’d stay, stuck on the other side.
Till they knew, that they’d stay, stuck on the other side.

Feel the love, as you hold their hand, in the promised land,
sing this song, as you go down….

Baby Love. River baby love. Baby love. River baby love.

So you see, they had to stay.
But they all knew, there would come a day - yeah you know they did…
 Sit by the steps, of the bottle shop.
With not much to do, but that’s all they’ve got.
Yeah watching the river, till it finally drops.
 Some got restless, some got bored, some got stoned.
Some made love in the promised land
Yeah, they made love in the promised land.

Come on down, there’s no time to spare, you can breathe the air, round and round, down and down….
Feel the love, as you hold their hand, in the promised land, sing this song, as you go down…. as you go down.

River baby love, River baby love…...
