Fashion week has been a bustling and busy flurry of events, shows, musical performances, and well, there's a lot of clothes too. One artist who's been successfully placing her stamp all over NYC these past few days is London's VV Brown. A handful of performances, DJ gigs and appearances all over town make this lady a "land shark" in our east coast waters.
With her debut album, Travelling Like the Light, seeing a stateside release back on February 2, Fashion Week seemed the fitting opportunity for Brown to make her mark on wanting ears.
On Wednesday, VV brought her show to Hiro Ballroom for a night of throwback tunes capped by a crisp voice...and some colorful adornments of the headdress-kind. Coursing her way through nearly each cut from her debut release, Brown proved she has the chops to make her mark on mainstream media here, as she has done so in her homeland of fair Londontown.
While Brown still has strides to make in terms of general stage presence (we really dig the megaphone, gong and additional props, but were left wanting eye contact and connection with we, a fresh new audience), overall, we left the venue rising a high of retro radness, even though we had to wait over an hour and a half for her to start.
