English singer-songwriter, V.V. Brown is gearing up for the release of her second album “Lollipops & Politics” due out before the end of the year. Her nursery rhyme inspired lead single “Children” has already been released and now V.V has just put up a free download of “The Playground” Mixtape. It’s quite different from what she has done in the past, but definitely worth a listen. Experimenting with different sounds has done V.V some good and I can’t wait for the album.
Here is what V.V. Brown had to say about the mixtape:
“Making an album is a process of experimenting and a lot of songs get lost, changed, redone or discarded. Touring makes you fall into a bubble, real life doesn’t exist and everything is exciting with a sense of appreciation for the shows and the people that come to see you play, but a plastic experience backstage. When I came of the road, locked in my studio and home again, this was my place of experimenting and finding myself again, but not the old self, a more mature experienced self. Before making a solid album I thought it would be amazing to make a mix-tape. A real window into the process of experimentation and creativity. Its a very low-fi attempt to show you where my head was at and where it was going up to a polished record.”
“The mixtape is called the Playground, centred around this concept about questioning the youth and where we are at as a generation much in line with what Im talking about overall in alot of the songs I’m singing. A twisted sense of nievity and innocence with an undertone of cynisism and debate about the mirage that we really need to see what really is going on.”
