Fleetingly, But Completely
The Victoriana is the musical crafting of Riverside, CA local Derek Page. Having previously only released select tracks on various media over the past five years, Fleetingly, But Completely is The Victoriana's first legitimate release. It is a fragrant love-letter to the ephemeral: twirling, evaporating experiences of blue torment and glittering joy, their charms endowed and ever-changing with their questionable impermanence. Sparkling with ornaments of guitar and swooning fretless basses, Fleetingly, But Completely unfurls a sensuous, contemporary "gothic romance" free of the doldrums traditionally associated with "gothic" music.
