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 go into Liv's new songs not just expecting beautiful sounds, but ~knowing~ that's what she'll have created. This new single is gorgeous and gets me all worked up to hear the whole EP now.

I'd be cool if you just kept doing Drizzy covers but then you go ahead and create sparkling little gems like this too. damn.
