With acclaim from the likes of BBC 6Music, and performances for Sofar Sounds and supporting Laura Viers at Bush Hall, GIHE fave and previous radio guest host MIRI has recently shared a poignant new single.
Released to coincide with Mental Health Awareness Day earlier this month, ‘Just Breathe’ reflects on the negative impact some social media can have, whilst delivering a message of love and positivity. Propelled by a soothing, soulful splendour and emotion-strewn majesty, the soaring heartfelt power of Miri’s distinctive vocals flows alongside an uplifting musicality, oozing an endearing sense of hope. With resonant lyrics such as “You can call on me, I’ll be the safe space that you need”, it’s a stirring ode to self care and taking care of those you love, at a time when we need it the most.
Of the track, MIRI explains: “Just Breathe is my message to anyone struggling mentally to please reach out for help. We are living in an incredibly stressful and intense time especially with the pandemic. It can all have a major impact on our mental health and wellbeing which is why it was important for me to release this track for WMHD.”
‘Just Breathe’ is accompanied by a beautifully calming video, directed by Kate Lane. Watch here:
