V V Brown is a singer, a songwriter, a performer, multi-instrumentalist and a producer, and her debut single, “Crying Blood” will be released by Island Records on November 3rd.
The single, taken from VV ‘s debut “Travelling Like The Light” which will be released next year, was written on a one-string guitar and is a perfect introduction to the 24-year old’s sound which she variously describes as indie doo-wop/musical mashed potatoes. In VV ‘s world, love sounds like the perfect melody. Both are difficult to define she says, but both pour out of the songs on her debut album.
This is music which sounds like performance: dramatic, charismatic and, frequently, as mad as a box of frogs. This is high definition, high concept pop with scuffed edges and laddered tights. “It’s about letting out all these ideas I’ve had locked up in my mind,” Brown states. “It’s honest – it’s not about being festooned with £10m diamonds or having perfect hair.”
