Before settling down to listen to the latest single courtesy of V.V Lightbody, make sure that you have tethered yourself down to a heavy object as her latest offering runs the real risk of causing listeners to float away amongst the clouds with its kitsch, folksy acoustics. Hailing from Chicago, Vivian McConnell treats us to her dreamy new single ‘Fish in Fives’, taken from her new LP.
Classic, vintage harmonies ease us into the track before V.V. Lightbody’s ethereal vocals tell us that although she is gentle, she is powerful – “I’m a hummingbird in its net”. Imagery of nature isn’t just reserved for the lyrics however, as the accompanying video sees V.V Lightbody in a dutiful, domestic setting, preparing flowers to eat before swallowing down a spoonful.
Playful flutes halfway through add to the other-worldliness of the track as the gentle acoustics aid the free-flowing nature of the song. V.V Lightbody gifts us a dreamy lullaby with ‘Fish In Fives’, leaving us eagerly anticipating her new LP.
Bathing Peach, the new album from V V Lightbody, is out now.
