‘walk by’ OUT NOW!!

“Putting her heart out on her sleeve, Liv Byrne’s new track “Walk By” showcases a celestial take on a vulnerably bittersweet break up. Departing slightly from her recent dark pop, break up songs, Byrne‘s versatility is highlighted through the variety in her recent releases. “Walk By” begins with sounds of warm synths in the distance. Within the first 30 seconds it’s clear that this is not the same sharp, vengeful break up energy we’ve seen from Byrne recently. She’s created a buoyant, ethereal atmosphere with this track that creates thrilling contrast within her canon of works. There is also a new sweetness in her lyrics, looking back wistfully at a relationship this seems to have been a ’wrong place, wrong time’ scenario. The ebb and flow of the instrumentation that accompanies these lyrics uplifts and supports the story with ease. The strings are possibly my favorite addition, giving “Walk By” a regal, Bridgerton-esque quality. All in all, “Walk By” is an exciting new addition that adds a fresh perspective to Liv Byrne’s repertoire.” – Waxing Nostalgic

“It’s been quite a week for sad girls with a fiery backstory and Liv Byrne’s new release ‘I <3 Olivia’ is no exception. Featuring sizzling vocals, saw wave synth, and biting lyrics, Byrne has crafted an anthemic piece full of post breakup vengeance. ‘I <3 Olivia’ starts out with an almost spoken vocal line, feeling like emotionally charged dialogue with electric guitar underscoring. Byrne expresses lyrically how she doesn’t actually resent the other woman, Olivia, but her past partner. In fact, she clearly conveys that she loves Olivia and “hopes she can escape” the situation. Sound wise, the production of the song is fairly straightforward, utilizing midi synthesizer in addition to the electric guitar and vocals. Byrne’s use of sawtooth waves adds a heightened heat to the echoey, chamber-like resonance that is consistent throughout the song and vocals. By juxtaposing the direct and sharp lyrics with ethereal underscoring, the overall outcome is well balanced with depth and contrast. All in all, ‘I <3 Olivia’ has everything you could want from an impassioned and intense break up anthem.” – Waxing Nostalgic
