Do you remember Vanessa Brown? She was good. Do you remember V V Brown? She was really good. How about this new artist 'V V', though? Well the thing is, readers, they are all actually the same person, but it doesn't really matter what name's on the jpg because as you will hear below the music remains top notch.
This new single — the first from V V's forthcoming third album — was created alongside some chap V V found on SoundCloud. Stylistically it follows on rather nicely from 2013's extraordinary 'Samson & Delilah' album but if you combine 'Shift' with that 'Instincts' teaser from last month it feels like there are even more ideas and even more ambition this time round. At the same time you feel an even greater sense that V V is finally completely comfortable with who, what and where she is as an artist.
So that's nice.
The single's out to buy and stream this Friday; if you'd like to hear V V's new album sooner rather than later you might like to consider chucking some cash at her PledgeMusic page. (She will write a song about you for £500, which has to be the bargain of the century.)
