VV Brown doesn’t take anything lying down. The alternative pop songstress started her career in the music business when she was 18, but abruptly quit when she realized she wasn’t getting things done her way. Cue two years later, and she’s singing about heartbreaks and bad breakups with the same genuine enthusiasm she usually reserves for vintage fashion. A model for Next Models and a Marks and Spencer girl on the side, it’s no surprise that the statuesque Brown has a stellar sense of style. But what does take us aback is the sudden poise she has when directly mentioning exes — a graciousness most singing-in-the-spotlight somethings usually don’t hold too close.

VV Brown has been tipped for great things in and after listening to her debut album, it’s not surprising. In the past she’s been a backing singer for the likes of Madonna, the Pussycat Dolls and Westlife, but whatever type of music you like, you’re bound to find something on Travelling Like The Light that you love. Shark In The Water was the first single and so is the track you’re most likely to recognise, but there’s loads more potential hits.
Crying Blood and L. E have memorable melodies that’ll hook in your head from the first time you hear them. And although Crazy Amazing is pretty catchy, it’s also quite annoying as it sounds as if it’s based on a famous piano tune and just doesn’t sound right. Without a doubt.

Hey, our system thinks you’re a bot.
You canned your album and went it alone. I thought I was going crazy, jeopardising my career and financial security but listening back to Lollipops and Politics it felt different from the person I was. The second time round it was my decision to no longer be in a major label position. It was really difficult, but a massive rebirth, and the risk was really empowering.

The critically-acclaimed singer is heading on a 6-date date of the UK on the back of her new album, ‘Samson & Delilah.’ VV Brown has just announced a string.
Three years later however, and the singer is something of a minor footnote as her debut album failed to truly connect. Travelling Like The Light was a fairly functional and generic sprightly major label debut album but it resembled more of a stylised product than a committed artistic project. The effect of her brief period in the limelight as well as an aborted second album left Brown disillusioned with the music industry, and she has spent the last three years working in the fashion industry while forging her own distinct career.
If her debut did not fully represent her as an artist, the second VV Brown album is a line in the sand. This single-minded approach runs throughout an album that pays no heed to prevailing trends or desire for 12 hook filled potential singles. The overwrought dramatics are indicative of a more sonically adventurous, if slightly cold and joyless, approach. The overall effect is disorienting.
