Norwegian born, UK based country music star Liv Austen is one of the most exciting talents in the genre at the moment and later this month she returns with her brand new single titled ‘Window Shopping’.
If you are a fan of the likes of female powerhouses Kelsea Ballerini, Maren Morris, Danielle Bradbery and Taylor Swift then you are going to absolutely love this latest release from Austen which promises to be one of the biggest songs of the Summer.
Liv describes her unique sound as “part Scandi pop, part UK singer/songwriter and part Nashville country”. And with new single ‘Window Shopping she has created a track that is full of great lyrics and catchy melody hooks, which is what made people first pay attention to her when she first arrived on the country scene.
The new release was written by Liv Austen and Kaity Rae, who is a young, extraordinary songwriting talent, often mentioned as a favourite of The Shires’ Ben Earle. Earle has followed and supported both artists’ careers from early on. While he also penned Liv’s 2016 single ‘Over‘.
Austen and Rae bonded over their frustration with how superficial a lot of people can be when looking for love; “We are all expected to have a “type”, and the standard for young people is to judge who they want to date from a photo. Is the addiction to keep browsing for the perfect match preventing us from having real life connections and feel genuine attraction? Window Shopping challenges listeners to life authentically, to “try someone on” rather than just tick boxes and expect love to be the result”
Speaking further about ‘Window Shopping, Liv says: “It is always a goal of mine to write something that’s fun and catchy on the surface, but holds a much deeper meaning for anyone who listens closely to the lyrics.”
‘Window Shopping’ will be officially released, July 20th! Make sure you follow Liv Austen on Twitter @LivAusten to keep up to date with all her latest music and tour news!
