Following a string of singles in quick succession, London-based singer, songwriter and producer Runrummer has released her debut EP Soul Wrinkles on all streaming platforms. The four-song record was co-produced with Rob Daniels at the Cafe Music Studio (Jon Hopkins, Brian Eno, Imogen Heap) and offers up dreamy electropop alongside gritty lyricism.
“I’ve got all these experiences and stories which have made me into the person I am, and I see all those things as wrinkles in my soul – they’ve grown with me and I with them,” explains Runrummer, AKA Livi Morris. “That’s why the EP has this title. There’s no point in having regrets, as those things moulded you into who you are and we need to accept and embrace that.”
Runrummer is originally from Bromsgrove and takes her moniker from the famous Rum Runner Club that helped launch Brummie bands Duran Duran and Dexys Midnight Runners in the 70s and 80s. A veteran of the music industry by her teens, she spent time writing and collaborating with The Chainsmokers and Showtek before embarking on her own solo musical journey. Like many of the new crop of young British pop, she pulls influences from 80s electro bands alongside varied contemporary sounds from Flume, Tame Impala and King Princess and frankly explores complex subjects like gender identity, mental health and sexuality in her lyrics.
