On the track, a dirty bass groove and slick beat give way to a hook highlighted by the most pervasive quarantine question of all, “Why aren’t we having sex?” Her sultry voice takes flight as she delivers an empowered and engaging anthem that’s as flirty and fun as it is fiery. Meanwhile, the music video emanates the same amount of heat. Liza transfixes in a wedding dress and white cowboy hat as the visual intercuts various couples asking and acting on the title’s question. Liza enlisted the help of her friends to make cameos including PRETTYMUCH’s Edwin Horonet and fellow songwriting powerhouse Ali Tamposi.
“I wrote ‘Why Aren’t We Having Sex? ‘ a few hours after checking into the most ridiculously sexy house I’ve ever stayed in,” said Liza. “It felt like a ‘70s James Bond villa. With the mood being just right, the light just right and the drinks flowing…Isn’t that the question on everyone’s mind?”
“Why Aren’t We Having Sex?” might just be the ultimate post-lockdown anthem.
Liza Owen spins pop upside down and all around with unfiltered lyrics, undeniable melodies, and unapologetic spirit. Of Cambodian descent, she originally hails from the English countryside. Breaking into the business, she initially lent her sharp lyricism to the likes of Selena Gomez and BTS as a songwriter. While on a recent writing retreat in Palm Springs with her key collaborators who also happen to be her best friends, she envisioned and enacted her next chapter, building a launchpad for a solo project. As if guided by serendipity, she stumbled upon a pink neon sign with the words, “Why Aren’t We Having Sex?” and used it to illuminate a Studio 54-themed party she
hosted. Those words seeped into the concept of her first bold and bright banger “Why Aren’t We Having Sex?” Now, she has all the makings of a smart and subversive star.
