No matter how you’re currently feeling, Miss World’s “Put Me In A Movie” will have you feeling like everything really is groovy all the time. A super catchy anthem for embracing self-love, the song is a celebratory jam full of danceable beachy vibes and garage pop undertones at the same time. The new project of London’s Natalie Chahal (also half of feminist punk duo Shit Girlfriend), Miss World recently announced a debut EP Waist Management, to be released October 13 on Punk Slime Recordings. It’s a new project, with the mellow first track “Buy Me Dinner” self-released a few months ago, but I already can’t wait to hear the rest of the EP and dance along to more Miss World’s earwormy melodies at full volume.
“All the boys they really like me / and all the girls they wanna fight me / I'll have fun to the day I'm dead with all the space up in my head,” Chahal sings on “Put Me In A Movie,” a witty and astute tribute to living your best life and not feeling bad about it. As Chahal tells The Le Sigh, “It's about feeling entitled and lazy but like, totally fabulous at the same time. It's sarcastic and satirical … but there's also empowerment in the 'fake it til you make it' sentiment of the song.”
Head over to bandcamp to hear the first two tracks now, and pre-order Waist Management to get the rest when it’s released.
