Electro soul bedroom artist St. South delivers biting lyrics in the form of a building piano ballad with her latest single “Not Angry Yet.” The track will be featured on the singer-songwriter-producer’s recently announced debut full length album Get Well Soon, out July 17th via Nettwerk. “Not Angry Yet” continues the album’s story of grief, heartbreak and ultimately, self-love as St. South (aka Olivia Gavranich) unveils an intimate self-portrait through each song.
She says, “The ﬁrst few days post-break-up can be raw and confusing. Anger slowly starts setting in, alongside confusion and desperation. This track is about being alone in my house the days following my partner leaving me and questioning all of the possible reasons why she did. Trying to complete household chores was a mundane task which left me questioning even the ﬁrmness of my bed not being enough for her: ‘I hang out the washing, I’m not what she wanted. I’m folding the laundry, was my bed too hard for you after all?’ I brought in all of the drums for the last chorus as a juxtaposition for the line ‘I’m not angry yet.’”
“Not Angry Yet” follows previously released tracks, the introspective “Growing Up”, the chillwave-tinged “Does Your Brain Ever Get This Loud?” and the up-tempo break up song “If It’s Not You (feat. N.Y.C.K.),” showcasing her penchant for juxtaposing between vulnerable storytelling and pop overtones.
St. South is the moniker for Australian singer-songwriter-producer-multi-instrumentalist Olivia Gavranich. She self-released her debut EP Nervous Energy in 2016, which garnered millions of streams, as well as TV placements with The Vampire Diaries and The Fosters. She followed that up with 2017’s Inure and is currently working on new music. Without any outside support and no touring history, St. South has already built a steady and dedicated fanbase, with over 23,000 fans across social properties and almost 400,000 monthly listeners at Spotify alone.
