That funky, 60’s-inspired bassline gets me going every time. Throw in a couple of woozy synths, some bouncy keys, and a dash of hazy, dreamy vocals, and you’ve got yourself a Victor Solf classic. Released this year, “How Did We?” blends the soul of the 60s with modern electronica seamlessly, creating a track that is equal parts old-school and contemporary, with a truly unique edge.
Up until 2018, Victor Solf was one half of the renowned band, Her. After the untimely passing of his bandmate, Simon Carpentier, Solf took it upon himself to follow his bandmate and close friend’s last wishes: to play the songs and sing the lyrics. And he has continued to do so with absolute passion and perfect feeling, honoring Carpentier by completing the album they’d started together before he passed. Subsequently, he released his solo album, Aftermath, in 2020, and several more singles over that year. “How Did We?” Is his first release for 2021.
Despite Solf’s heartbreaking story, this latest single is a fun-filled, highly danceable jam that is sure to put a smile on your face. Ultimately, Victor Solf is a strong reminder that the power of music can be incredibly healing and comforting and that within it, there is always joy to be found.
