Liv.e is a visual learner by nature, able to let loose and enjoy the process of making music divorced from external expectations. This free interpretation fuels the esoteric soundscapes on her previous work F.R.A.N.K., Couldn't Wait To Tell You…, and now her sophomore album Girl In The Half Pearl. AD LOADING... On Girl In The Half Pearl, Liv.e clashes drum & bass with stacked harmonies, goes full techno to a fuck-haters rant, and fills bottomless voids with reverb'd screams to compile a montage of frequencies.
Shape-shifting and soulful, Liv.e has been a quietly potent force in alternative R&B and hip-hop for years. Her breakout project, 2018's hoopdreams, got her the attention of Earl the Sweatshirt and a spot on tour with him, but it was her highly-praised 2020 debut album Couldn't Wait to Tell You… that solidified her reputation as an R&B innovator. On it, she boldly fused soul, jazz, and lo-fi samples into vignette-like tracks marked by their wry and conversational tones.
