British chanteuse, V V Brown made some noise in 2009 with her debut album Travelling Like the Light and soulful indie pop jams like "Crying Blood" (this one ought to be a Halloween staple by now) and "Shark in the Water". V V returns with "Children", the Chiddy Bang-assisted first single of her upcoming sophomore effort, Lollipops & Politics.
"Children" is an infectious, if not slight, old fashioned feel-good pop gem, somewhat reminiscent of Matt & Kim's "Cameras". The song mostly focuses on children's schoolyard-like chants, but it's hard to ignore Brown's massive vocals buried in there. Let's hope she lets them take the reigns soon.
Lollipops & Politics is out February 7, 2012.
