Today’s track of the day comes from Sweden’s Mauv – ‘Goodbye Friend’ is out today.
This Saturday 23 May sees the 5th Balcony Festival – this time in aid of The Music Venue Trust‘s #saveourvenues campaign. The show will be free to view via a number of established independent UK blogs who have collaborated to create this event – including right here, LOUD WOMEN!

Today’s video of the day comes from Poland’s Alfah Femmes, who offer ‘No Disco, No Drama’ – out today.
Alfah Femmes are a 6-piece band from Gdansk, Poland, featuring leading women (vocals, guitar, cello) and four men (remaining instruments). They say:
“The song tackles the subject of reminiscence, regret, and being stuck in limbo out of fear of exploring a romantic situation.”
The music video is partly edited out of private VHS footage from 17 years ago.
Their LP ‘No Need to Die’ is due to release 21 Oct 2020.
Today’s track of the day is ‘Cigs’ – a collaboration between Brooklyn artists Vaeda Black and Saverio, out today. Written, produced and recorded in one late night over Facetime during quarantine. Home early from their college music production program in Brooklyn, they decided to collaborate and sent files back and forth to each other, adding their own styles to the project. The outcome is cigs, a song about young love, heartbreak, and apathy in the aftermath of a breakup.
Throughout the lockdown, LOUD WOMEN will be continuing our mission to get female voices heard, via whatever means is available!
Totally free, totally brilliant, and you can wear your cuddle-clothes.
