The pure elegance of Liv Dawson's soulful tones move with supreme ease. Taking charge of Disclosure's iconic, UKG-leaning beats on her latest single "Searching", the 18-year-old singer and songwriter from London is set to become the perfect protege to the almighty Jessie Ware. Singing with poetic wisdom, lamenting the loss of a love that never was, Liv Dawson's unassuming vocal style lends itself effortlessly to fast moving, dance-licked beats. Collaborating with major dance producers Jimmy Napes, Tobias Jesso Jr, Bruno Major and SG Lewis to now Guy and Howard Lawrence, a charged talent is on the rise.
Speaking to Complex over email, Liv explained how the track came together: "I was in the studio with Disclosure and Jimmy Napes working on ideas when the boys came up with the beat for 'Searching'... I literally cannot wait to play it to everyone at my Omeara show in February (15th), and also at festivals across the summer." With January finally out of the way and the hope of Spring looming, this is the perfect appetiser for the soon-to-come longer days in a warmer haze.
