The single, ‘Tar Liom’ is sung in the Irish Language or ‘Gaeilge’.

Victoria says, ’Gaeilge is such an inherently musical language, and it lends itself so well to being sung. It’s a powerful thing that Irish music resonates so well with people all over the world. It’s a true musical identity and I’ve endeavored to showcase a sense of Ireland’s musical heritage through this song. As an artist I’m very much influenced by how almost ethereal Ireland’s scenery can be. The lyrics for ‘Tar Liom’ are very much influenced by nature and Ireland’s picturesque forests, valleys and mountains.”
