Chicago’s V.V. Lightbody coined herself as “nap rock”, but she’s the first to admit how much her sound is changing. Make a Shrine or Burn It, her much-anticipated Sophomore LP, comes out May 1st, 2020 on Acrophase Records.
V.V. Lightbody (Vivian McConnell from Chicago bands Santah/Grandkids) is playing music that is self-described as nap-rock. Dozing and comfortable songs that you could nap to, but if even if you don’t fall asleep, you would still feel rested enough to go about your day. Her songs have cocktail lounge vibes; layered with flutes & lyrics about dried fruit. Think of glitching mermaids.
