One of the more vital acts in the face of the pandemic, Mike Montrey Band have released a second single and video from their forthcoming

six-song EP, “In the Middle of Hope.” “Victoria” is a beautiful, harmonic country-rock ballad about how life gives you regrets, but sometimes it gives you roses. 

As the Makin Waves Song of the Week, “Victoria” can be heard at 5 and 11 a.m., 5 p.m. and midnight through Thursday at ThePenguinRocks.com and 6:45 PM on Friday and Monday on its “Radio Jersey” show. And here’s the premiere of the video for the bittersweet track:

On the album, Mike Montrey Band features vocalist Jen Augustine, bassist Anthony Duca, pedal steel guitarist Jack Stanton, drummer Andy Meyer, and keyboardist Phil Silverberg, who also lensed the clips for “Victoria” and the previous single, “Spirit of Youth.”
