TOTW29: VVBrown - Shark in the Water

Funky, soul, yet easy listening. I mentioned VV Brown in the Sound of 2009 post, but haven't since. Which is a bit of a surprise, given the praise I gave at the time. Thankfully, all good things return eventually, and Shark in the Water meets the criteria I said at the time. It's modern-enough to happily appear in the charts, whilst not being so full-on to not make the Coffin-Dodger Network's (aka Radio 2's) playlist. The opening may mislead some until the chorus, but the effect is great. More please!
