Bio

IT USED TO BE REALITY FOR SO MANY - BOYS DO THIS AND GIRLS DO THAT; BOYS WEAR THIS AND GIRLS WEAR THAT. IF A GIRL DIDN’T LOVE PINK, MAKE-UP, HIGH HEELS AND DRESSES, SHE WAS LABELLED FOR IT - CALLED A TOMBOY. IN HER THIRD SINGLE - NOT A TOMBOY - XIRA RELAYS WHAT SHE WISH SHE‘D SAID AS A YOUNG GIRL AND THE LAID-BACK CONFIDENCE SHE WISH SHE’D HAD WHILE SAYING IT, WHILE AT THE SAME TIME CELEBRATING “HOW FAR WE’VE COME”.

‘NOT A TOMBOY’ IS ABOUT CHAMPIONING PEOPLE BEING WHOEVER THEY WANT TO BE AND ENCOURAGING PEOPLE TO BE WHOEVER, AND WEAR WHATEVER, MAKES THEM THE HAPPIEST VERSION OF THEMSELVES.

CO-WRITTEN BY XIRA AND HAMLEY; AND PRODUCED BY XAVIER DUNN, WITH VOCAL PRODUCTION BY CAM NACSON.

empowered bouncy pop that will have you taking on your mum, your enemy, maybe even the whole bloody world.
