About Virgin Miri
Born into a creative chaos in south of Sweden, Miri quickly fell in love with music and writing songs. As a teen she co-founded controversial pop-duo Cupid Kidz aka “Sweden’s most dangerous band” according to TV4 news. After a few age-restricted music videos and getting banned in the city of Falun, Miri moved to New York to chase the American dream. Two years later she found herself with an expired visa and a broken heart. She quit her job, boyfriend and hairstyle and bought a one way ticket to Mexico crashing her best friends honeymoon. Under a palm tree by the Caribbean Sea Miri ate 200 tacos and wrote 200 songs. With a new purpose, Miri returned home to reside and create bedroom pop in her dads Stockholm office.
Miri takes inspiration from producers Kanye West, Timbaland and Terror Jr and is lyrically influenced by Bibi Bourelly, Frank Ocean and Lana Del Rey.
The Swedish pop singer is also a visual artist and designer and creates all of her own branding and videos including covers, gifs and motion graphics. You can find her with over 50 million views on GIPHY.
Virgin Miri debuted earlier this summer with pop gem Favorite Flavor. The single caught the eyes and ears of blogs around the world including award winning music journalist Per Sinding-Larsen.
Said about Favorite Flavor:
“Oscillating between a delicious pop and bursts of a most addictive rhythm, Virgin Miri offers a delicious escape in a world that will not fail to catch you.”
“Without any doubt I can say that Favorite Flavor is smashing hit, it has such an innovative sound.”
Le Future Wave
“...its catchy beat and memorable lyrics making it impossible to stop thinking about even after you’ve listened to it.”

With emotional strings and a heavy beat, Virgin Miri tells herself that he’s just another boy story, before eventually hitting the ground. Out on August 23rd on all platforms.
