VV Brown - 'Crying Blood'


“How did this songstress stay behind the scenes until now? I love this song it’s everything a big hit should be” Grazia

“I encounter the thrilling Spectorish pop of V V Brown and am struck by the notion that she might be massive.” The Word

Fast rising singer/songwriter/producer V V Brown, who recently landed a slot on Later With Jools a month upfront of the release of her debut single, “Crying Blood” (November 3rd), has just left the UK for Lagos, following an invitation from Damon Albarn to perform on his Africa Express adventure. V V will also be performing at the London Africa Express show at KOKO on October 22nd in conjunction with the BBC Electric Proms.

“Crying Blood” is taken from V V’s forthcoming album “Traveling Like The Light” which will be released next year. The song 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 V V‘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.”
