Lauren Bird - Keep Trying


The Metaphorical Boat has been fans of Strabane singer/songwriter Lauren Bird for some time, enjoying her fantastic 2017 album "The Inbetween", and even having her on as a guest on the podcast around the time of its release.

Since then, she's been relatively quiet on the new music front, bar a one-off single release in 2018, but at the end of last year she released "Millennials", a song that saw Lauren taking her music in a new direction, most notably with the absence of the ukulele, the instrument that she's most associated with.

Her new single, "Keep Trying", is also ukulele-free, although it's not something that's too concerning, given how much this song struck a chord with me. It's a tender song about self-acceptance, about learning to love yourself for who you are, a song for "anyone who still struggles to look in the mirror." As someone who spent 29 years of his life looking in the mirror, hating the person he say in the reflection, it's the sort of song I wish I could have heard many years ago, and hopefully it's a song that can provide comfort and support to the people who need it.

Plus, the music video has cute dogs in it. And everyone sensible likes dogs. 

"Keep Trying" is available now.
