VV Brown - v.v. good

VV Brown is a self-styled doo-wop indie pop starlet that has been grabbing my attention of late. She released her debut single "Crying Blood" ( essentially a total rip off of monster mash - but a bloody brilliant rip off!) towards the end of last year and released the follow up "Leave" this week.

Its a real grower of a song and VV's ability to convey genuine emotion through the chirp and bounce of a happy melody is something to be admired. On top of that the b-side to the digital download is, in my opinion, a really amazing cover of The Smith's "This Charming Man" which is transformed it into a thoughtful electro number with VV's vocals complimenting the production perfectly. In fact it has to be one of the best b-sides/covers I've heard in ages.

There is also a really awesome remix/cover by She Who Must Not Be Named...
