Bio

As a songwriter, singer, and producer, St. South has worked tirelessly on the skills required to make the kind of nuanced and soulful electro she’s known for. But her sound is not just a study in technical self-reliance; it is an intimate portrait of an artist who lives life on her own terms.

Her latest single, “Does Your Brain Ever Get This Loud,” is sprinkled with chillwave fuzz and a warm layered sample of St. South’s voice. Softly pulsing forth, she recounts the crisis that hits in your mid 20s. “I’m often riddled with self-doubt. But this song is the process of accepting that, while learning that it’s completely ok to feel lost and purposeless.”

St. South is the moniker for Fremantle-based singer-songwriter-producer-multi-instrumentalist Olivia Gavranich. She self-released her debut EP Nervous Energy in 2016, which garnered millions of streams, as well as TV placements with The Vampire Diaries and The Fosters. She followed that up with 2017’s Inure, and is now preparing to release her debut full length album later this year.

i wanted this to go for another 3 minutes. it remains serene and angelic among the frustration and is the perfect use of a swear word for impact.

you've truly mastered the art of capturing serenity in a totally authentic, simple way. that gentle build around the 2min 30sec mark adds a whole new weight to the perfectly worded chorus.
