“I first saw Liv Austen perform a set at a folk festival in the intimate surroundings of the famous The Bedford in Balham, London, United Kingdom and immediately purchased her ‘Workin Man’s Dream’ EP. Since then she has performed at several festivals including C2C at London’s O2 Arena. She is now back with a new single and we have all of the details”:

Norwegian born, UK based rising country artist Liv Austen is back with a brand new single. The track is entitled ‘Window Shopping’ and is taken from her forthcoming debut album. Austen’s new single is released on Friday 20th July 2018.

Liv describes her unique sound as “part Scandi pop, part UK singer/songwriter and part Nashville country”.

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 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.”
