In “Copacabana,” Livi Jacobs weaves a tale of yearning for escape from the mundane routines of everyday life. The song marks a departure from her previous works, exploring a more tropical sound that adds a refreshing dimension to her repertoire. Austrian-born and raised, Livi now calls a remote town on the southwest coast of Florida her home. Her musical journey began in her early teens, and she’s since dedicated herself to honing her craft. From attending workshops to studying songwriting at the Idyllwild Arts Academy and making stops in Nashville and LA, Livi’s path has been a rich tapestry of experiences that have shaped her as an artist.
While still a relative newcomer to the industry, with just three prior releases, Livi has already made a significant mark. Her debut garnered over 70,000 streams and more than 1,000 playlist adds in just three months, steadily building a devoted following. With “Copacabana,” Livi taps into a universal desire to break free from the monotony of daily life. The lyrics resonate with anyone who has felt the urge to escape and rediscover themselves. Livi’s candid admission of feeling lost in the world’s noise is poignantly captured in the song. The production elevates this sentiment, using the guitar as a rhythmic anchor and incorporating acoustic elements to create a beachy, dreamlike atmosphere.
“Copacabana” is not just a song; it’s an invitation to embark on a mental journey, to momentarily shut off from reality, and to find solace in the unknown. Livi Jacobs has crafted more than music; she’s created an escape, wrapped in a melody.
