Some people are perfectly content meandering through life, taking what’s thrown at them and letting it stop them.
Then, there’s people like Olivia Reid, who takes each challenge and climbs every hill she faces with grace and excitement. Passion and hard work are come second nature to Olivia. Currently living in New York City, she embodies the fast-paced, constantly moving mentality that stands as a hallmark characteristic of New Yorkers. Her music is an extension of that persona, and her new single, “Runner’s High,”encapsulates that striving for success mentality.
“’Runner’s High’ describes the way I’ve conditioned myself to be a workhorse, a product of growing up in America, I guess. I wanted this song to feel like that moment when I’m sprinting and my legs finally seem to move faster than my thoughts, and my mind is free. At that point, the high, the bliss – feels earned – and it’s most definitely addicting.” – Olivia Reid
“Runner’s High”was born after an Instagram DM from co-producers Ry Jones and Bastian Testori, who created an early version of the track. The song is a self-reflection, with Reid musing about her constant chase of progress, using the high that comes with accomplishing goals as a motivator. Between her unique incorporation of synths, emotionally conscious lyrics, and electronic beats backing her glossy vocals, Olivia Reid is someone to watch out for.
This song is a must-have for your spring playlists as you embark on your own journey of personal growth. Make sure to listen to “Runner’s High”below and follow Olivia Reid at Instagram @OliviaReidMusic.
