UK native and indie-pop mastermind VV Brown has finally cracked the US Billboard Hot 100 nearly a year after her single, “Shark in the Water”, was released in mid-2009. The track debuted at number 97 on the mainstream chart this morning.
It’s no surprise that VV’s incredibly unique sound took it’s good old time making it’s mark on the notoriously-difficult US commercial market, but I’m glad to report that it’s finally happened! VV’s visionary dominance over the indie-pop genre is clear, using a fresh combination of classic 60s rock-inspired, candy-coated, fiercely-danceable tracks, her debut album Travelling Like the Light remains one of the best of the decade.
Here’s wishing you much more success in the US, VV.
