Vivienne is the artist name of Evelyn Privitera. A first year student at Goldsmiths, studying fine art, Evelyn started writing this album when he was just seventeen. Stud is Vivienne’s debut release, signed after meeting at an Objects Limited workshop when he started sending songs to the label.
‘Stud' is a mixture of acoustic singer-songwriting and electronic textures that are held together with Vivienne’s mixture of soft, feminine and punk vocals. Its topics range from self-reflection to playful angst with a lo-fi feel throughout. Lyrics are based on the complex emotions of a person finding out about their sexuality and identity. As Vivienne himself explains *“Stud is emotional longing and apathy and hatred disgustingly writhing alongside a sexuality that relies entirely on traumatic experience and feeds on dangerous situations and bodily functions.” *
