Songfacts®:

  • This tongue-in-cheek track finds the Madrid female quartet Hinds snarling at the unsolicited comments they've received over the years.

    I don't know you but a friend of mine does
    He says you were successful 'cause you legs were nice


    Hinds have had to endure endless sexist and prejudiced remarks because they are a female band. Said the group: "'Miau' is a cocktail of all the comments and 'advice' we've had to listen to during all the years in the band. From random strangers, 'friends', and industry. Oh wait... the guy sitting next to you in the bus probably has an opinion too! If you wondered how does it feel to be a girl in a band, here you go."
