Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - p.107
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[H]er music floats exhilaratingly outside of time, blending thumping garage-rock rhythms, doo-wop chords, [and] Spectorian girl-group stylings..."
Spin - p.83
"[O]n the George Michael-esque peak 'Shark in the Water,' Brown bares a fierce charisma."
Entertainment Weekly - p.106
"[Brown] gilds the husky neo-soul of the Duffy/Adele/Winehouse school with her own sunnier, strummier doo-wop moxie."
"Brown's debut sets her apart from the pack of vintage-mining songstresses because unlike her contemporaries, she is not afraid to rock."
Billboard - "Brown slyly appropriates the '30s piano standard 'Heart and Soul' on 'Crazy Amazing.' The album's standout track is 'Shark in the Water,' with its acoustic opening and swelling, anthemic chorus."

Product Description:

Its lengthy incubation process notwithstanding, V.V. Brown's clever debut album, Travelling Like the Light, is as genuine, natural, and deep as mishmash throwback pop can get. There are a couple contemporary moments, like "Shark in the Water," featuring strummy verses and a surging chorus, but the album mostly shoots forth nods to R&B and rock & roll of the '50s, '60s, and '70s that are relentlessly playful, whether the lyrics reveal tears, daggers, or butterflies. Brown, an English songwriter who has written hits for the Pussycat Dolls and Sugababes, is bound to provoke comparisons with Janelle MonĀ e for her retro look and boundless energy, but she's closer to being the child of Kirsty MacColl and the sibling of Jazmine Sullivan, messing with pop traditions as she courts and reprimands with a large, youthful voice that positively dances. ~ Andy Kellman
