Who are you?
Hello! I'm Vickie aka Victoria; I'm the singer in the band the Pirouettes and I also make videos.
Tell us about how you got to where you are now?
I started the band The Pirouettes when I met Leo in our last year of high school. We both moved to Paris after graduating. We continued making music together and have made two albums since then. As well as designing the records sleeves and directing some of the videos for our band, I also direct videos and create visuals for other musicians.

We’ve got a great second album called Monopolis coming out on September 28th! And a tour in the autumn, which will include a concert at the Olympia on 29th November.

Your most amazing trip - where, when and why?
It was to Greece last spring. We went to Athens and then on to the island of Amorgos, where we shot the video for Stolen Kisses. It was beautiful, there was almost no one else on the island. We rode a scooter, went swimming, and ate delicious food.
