Simple in its musicality, shiv uses her unique blend of R&B and lo-fi hip-hop with elements of soul and neo-soul to create music that is emotive and brimming with feeling. Her silky-sweet voice wraps you in a hug that carries her soulful lyrics and brings them to life over the warm, hazy instrumentals.
