As a child growing up, Liyv’s mother struggled with mental illness that manifested itself in verbal, emotional, and physical abuse. So from an early age, Liyv had to learn to protect herself from someone who should have been caring for her.
This is all unpacked through her new single ‘Let Me Know’, which is truly is one of the most moving compositions you will experience all week.
“‘Let Me Know’ is a message to the younger me that is still a very real part of my psyche. I want her to understand that the things that are happening to her are not her fault. I want to give her permission to allow herself to want life to be better. That’s something I never felt I was allowed to do.”
Taken from the forthcoming sophomore album ‘Matriarch’ which is out soon.
