Liv†

Black Girl Unbothered

Released September 2019

Regardless, this record has racked up significant local praise: KEXP describes the EP as “breezy, quietly confident, and romantic by immaculate design … as surehanded with shit talk as it is come-ons, celebrating the individuality of one very talented black woman,” while Dan’s Tunes succinctly notes the “combination of fluid heat.” In praising the production, Respect My Region says, “I melted the moment I heard that bass slap out those first four notes.”
