V.V. Lightbody / Ohmme [small room]
Less than a year after Bathing Peach, her debut LP, V.V. Lightbody brilliantly returns with two direct and shimmering singles: “Baby, Honestly” and “Car Alarm.” Both embody “nap rock”, — V.V.’s invented genre. Engineered by Dave Vettraino (Lala Lala, Makaya McCraven, Deeper), these singles feature some of Chicago’s most talented musicians who often accompany her on stage. V.V. lyrically explores what sins she can live with: white lies, casual flirting, oversharing, the male gaze, uncontrollable lust, staying in, boredom, and feeling insatiably social.
V.V. Lightbody is the solo project of Vivian McConnell, a seasoned songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Complex and hummable, V.V. has been floating in the Chicago music world for ~5 years and has recently played with acts such as Jeff Tweedy, Whitney, Lala Lala, Gia Margaret, Haley Heynderickx, Bedouine, Shannon Lay, Liz Cooper + the Stampede, Blank Range, and Ohmme.
