V.V. Lightbody, artistic moniker of Vivian McConnell, wants her music to leave you relaxed — well, maybe not too relaxed. The Chicago-based artist self-describes her sound as “nap-rock.” This brave new genre title blends guitar and flute with loungey vibes to craft an atmosphere that feels like the liminal space between a cocktail bar and a bedroom.

McConnell has a new 7″ on the way via the Nashville-based Acrophase Records, her first release since last year’s Bathing Peach. Today, she has shared that single’s A-side, “Baby, Honestly.” It has a bossa nova-esque sound, glittery guitar strums, light percussion, and her deceptively sweet delivery.

Speaking about the track, McConnell says it has a “snake-in-the-grass” tone:

“Baby, Honestly” is my “snake-in-the-grass” song that explores what sinning feels like as a chronic people pleaser. I wrote it at a time where I didn’t want to do what people expected of me anymore. Putting myself before others felt like the first “sin,” followed by stretching the truth and admitting that I was bored by a lover’s interests. “Baby, Honestly” is appropriately two faced: biting lyrics hidden beneath a lush and charming soundscape.

Listen below, and check out the dates for Lightbody’s tour launching this week. (She’s also playing guitar for Lala Lala on tour later this year.)
