Miriam’s vocal style is swarming with ubiquitously traditional British styling. Her new track Freefalling is a captivating symphony which comprises of timeless, yet haunting melodies, that are so poignant they’re almost empyreal. But what really stands out about this track is the essence that its based upon. Her lyrics touch upon the travesty that the 21st century England has become to create a contemporary anthem that Billy Bragg would be proud of. You’d expect the lyrics “Foodbanks and bedroom tax, what century are we in?” to come from an angry anarchistic collective, however Miriam brings light to these painful topics in the most eloquent way I’ve ever had the pleasure of hearing with her distinctly upper-class influence. I only hope more artists follow in her footsteps.
Within her sound she mixes a myriad of soulful instruments such as acoustic guitar, flute harps and the violin to provide a truly ambient and lucid sound. You can taste the influences to her music, which she’s gathered from her youth spent in Ireland and her penchant for 70’s prog rock.
The latest track from her album Freefalling which was released on the 1st of December is now available to listen to and download via Bandcamp. If you do one thing today, make sure it’s checking out this track and all the heavenly splendour which accompanies it.
