Bio

St. South is the electronic/soul project of Olivia Gavranich. Self-described as 'easy chill', her music combines sparse, industrial electronic beats with Olivia’s distinctively warm, folk-flavoured vocals and electric guitar, creating a sound at once unique and instantly recognizable.

In August 2012, Olivia entered the Bon Iver Stems Project, and went on to win her category with her song, 'We Washed Texas'. The remix was officially released on Bon Iver's exclusive Stems Project album, by record label 'Jagjaguar'.

"Taking a quick gander on St. South’s Soundcloud page is going to be anything but quick, because once her vocals hit your ears, your deep and enthralling entrance into the abyss of her beauty will not end." - Hilly Dilly (Vancouver, CA)

"Not content with sticking to one style, Olivia draws on electronic influences too, using trickling programmed beats and softly churning synths to cement her brand of woozy, forward-thinking folk." - The Line of Best Fit (UK)

"This track is a cornucopia of awesomeness. The cutting lyrics illustrate a declaration of one’s independence from the destructive holds of a relationship gone wrong as Gavranich’s delicately layered vocals sweep across electronic soundscapes." - Hopeless Thunder (NYC)

I was hooked after about .07 seconds. I love how this sort of clicks and clacks and wabbles and your voice makes it all okay like a warm blanket.

Vocals float effortlessly over the smooth beats. I think you and Chet Faker should make songwriting babies together - that would be magical.

Wow, what a voice! The tone, the control and the delivery are all spot on. The production is great too, lo-fi but it totally works with the mood of the song. With a little more songwriting development, this lady will be quite a talent.
