Coming from a background of playing in ambient rock and Angels Are Architects, LIV LI is unveiling a brand new electro pop tune today called Told You, a dreamy, dainty song about breaking free of a controlling relationship.
Having won numerous awards for her work in Angels Are Architects as well as her work as a pop singer (she was even on The Voice Australia) briefly), LIV LI is her new alter ego, diving into electronic pop production and a more refined sound.
She says about the song, "Told You is about being in a controlling relationship and finally taking a stand. Taking back that power. A controlling person doesn't listen, they don't compromise and they have a unique gift to somehow turn everything around on you.
"When I wrote this song a good friend of mine was going through this and realising just how much of herself she had lost in this relationship. She had been promised the world and was leaving with nothing. So this song was about giving her back her voice. It's an acknowledgement of her bravery in taking back that control and power in her life and having the courage to move on. And finally having that last damn word!"
Atmospheric and piano-led, there's a meditative sound to Told You that reminds you of your own pounding heart as you come to the realisation that you're strong enough to leave.
Keep an eye on LIV LI as she emerges as a brand new voice in moody Australian pop.
