Box Hill Institute’s record label, Tremorverse Records, has unveiled a second track and artist to feature on the upcoming compilation album, Tremorverse Three. Introducing Liv McLean and her melodic groove bender, New Pair of Eyes.
Tremorverse announced its third compilation album earlier this year, debuting Alex Garla’s beautifully dank groove, No Love.
New Pair of Eyes highlights precisely what Liv McLean is known for – tight, flawless harmonies and warm, raspy vocals.
In the shadow of a fractured world, Liv spent the majority of 2020 in incubation, developing her unique style and flourishing in creative growth.
From writing and arranging new works, Liv recognises melodic phrases through her electric guitar and her vocals that create layering melodies and magical, eerie harmonies.
Her flexibility to immerse herself into fusing and fine-tuning the world of psychedelic soul with jazz fusion is what makes Liv’s sound, and indeed New Pair of Eyes, disparate from other artists’ work.
“New Pair of Eyes is based on shifting your perspective and rather than focusing on all the difficulties one might face, finding something positive to focus on to get out of a negative headspace.”
– Liv McLean
Drawing inspiration from Moses Sumney, Solange, Lianne La Havas and Radiohead, Liv McLean weaves elements of psychedelia, funk and dance grooves all connected by her exceptional voice.
This year has already bought promising opportunities for Liv. Immersing herself in the local scene supporting other artists has led Liv to perform alongside the likes of Priscilla Stanley, Charlie McCosh and Quarterback, all of which have performed sold out shows at The Workers Club early this year.
Additionally, having a weekly residency at the Sorrento Hotel alongside astounding guitarist Nick Vargas in February and March has significantly grown Liv’s dedicated fan base and status as a certified one-to-watch.
Delve into the gorgeous bent grooves of Liv McLean’s New Pair of Eyes and keep an ear out for Tremorverse Three dropping this winter.
