Names can be misleading: Runrummer makes you think more of a reggae party band than a serious electronic singer/songwriter, but the London-based artist Livi Morris is exactly that. Her second single “Eyes” is a soaring electro-pop piece about the struggle to find one’s identity. Livi turns her own experiences into[…]
