VV Brown – Shark In The Water

by MV


Somehow both of VV’s previous singles managed to sound a bit like ‘The Monster Mash’ gone 2009 pop. Which was OK, but kind of disconcerting. Can this one break the mould?

Well, yes in that it’s a mid-pace ballad, and therefore not sounding very comedy-rock’n’roll. But no, in that it’s not likely to win any prizes for originality. In any case, it’s a proper big old summery pop record, with strummy laidback guitars and horns in the chorus. Hard to dislike.
