MUSIC VIDEO FOR “DEAD EYES” 
NETWORK TELEVISION DEBUT ON 
THE LATE SHOW WITH STEPHEN COLBERT JUNE 22 
 
“”Dead Eyes” conjures a bar-room brawl from sparking guitar and choogling organ. Meanwhile, Victoria delights in lording her power with a spirited, almost comic performance, veering between seriousness and faux-incensed yelps. Whoever’s telling her she looks dead behind theeyes underestimates the force of the fire raging there.” –Pitchfork
 
“[her] ghostly folk tunes have given Nashville a creepy edge. ‘Dead Eyes’ is a pummeling and sinister track that finds Victoria yelping and refusing to back down.” –The FADER
 
“Adia Victoria is a gifted storyteller, contorting her unmistakable voice into new shapes with each song, conveying a deep existential rage…The album is an early contender for best of 2016.” – AfroPunk
 
This is dark, probing stuff…But it’s vibrant and vivid, threaded with a sense of her fighting personal and cultural bonds… She cites early blues-jazz star Victoria Spivey, and there are hints of a southern Patti Smith here, a folky Nina Simone. But those are fleeting images, giving way to an artist taking her own path.” – KPCC
 
Adia Victoria is celebrating the release her much-anticipated debut album –
Beyond The Bloodhounds – which is released today, May 13, via Canvasback Records. Today, she shares the music video for her single “Dead Eyes” via The Fader. who call the album  “a compilation of gothic, sharp-witted, and fiery folk that is excellent.”  Watch the video here:
