Prince Innocence’s Talvi goes solo with dreamy ballad “Victim Mentality”

Talvi‘s solo debut track, “Victim Mentality,” is taken from her upcoming album Queen Millennia, to be released on 2021.

Known as one half of Toronto’s amazing duo Prince Innocence, singer-songwriter and video director Talvi Faustmann is now going solo as Talvi. Her debut album, Queen Millennia, will be released sometime next year but the gorgeous first single, “Victim Mentality,” is already here. Adressing the delusions of love, she describes “Victim Mentality” as “in essence, a love song about an experience I had with someone that made me feel small that I wanted to reclaim.”

“It’s about how there’s foolishness and treachery when it comes to the narratives we apply to love but they’re often so much more beautiful than reality,” she adds about the dreamy ballad, which was produced by Sam Jackson Willows. “I feel bad for the people who can no longer access that foolishness.”
