Longterm fave and friend of LOUD WOMEN, East London’s MIRI, releases a beautiful new single today, ‘Trends’. A cheerfully rousing, proper pop song from MIRI which brings to mind (to my mind, at least) the soundtrack to the part of the movie where our hero is dusting themselves off, putting misadventure behind them, and setting off on a new adventure with their besties.

“I co wrote ‘Trends’ a while back. I was listening to a lot of Vampire Weekend at the time. I’ve performed it in lots of different spaces including the artist Natty’s Vibes & Pressure night in what use to be Passing Clouds. The times I performed it with a band I’d see the crowd get so hyped up, singing along to the chorus. The energy was so powerful. I knew because of this reaction I wanted to record and release it eventually.”
“Trends is about observing political corruption yet recognising our power and strength in imagination and creativity. The way that we can stand up, come together and use our voices to speak our truth.”

The single is released today exclusively on the Sonstream platform – which offers a pay-as-you-go model to listeners, helping to put streaming revenue directly in the pockets that earned it! MIRI has been very vocal (oh yes) in her support for the platform, and the need to make streaming revenue fair for independent artists.

Verse 1
Let's pick this up and start again
Let's try a little more
Judgments and life's cancelations won't stop me till I'm full
Cruel words and cruel minds all started somewhere I'm sure
These hard times don't have to be so hard
Cos I chose more

Let not me judge myself and others until I see what's true
Let's take a trip around this city
This freedom feels brand new
Those cruel words and cruel minds
Won't stand a chance I'm sure
These battered signs and battered spaces
Won't stop our travelling thoughts

Wild times as we set trends
These close minds help us to pretend
So say eh eh eh eh eh eh say what you feel
Just say eh eh eh eh eh say what you feel

Verse 2
I've heard what's been spoken and written
So silently discreet
A message of loss and propaganda to keep us off our feet
Those cruel words and cruel minds
Won't keep our full hearts down
These harsh lines to batter creation
Will keep our feeling loud

Chorus 2
Wild times as we set trends
These close minds help us to pretend
So say eh eh eh eh eh eh say what you feel
Just say eh eh eh eh eh say what you feel
