Evocative singer-songwriter Mirei tackles the conflicts associated with both everyday life and show business on “Lonely in Tokyo” off her English language debut Take Me Away. Modern conveniences are revealed to be utterly inconvenient. Additionally, she turns an unflinching eye on discomforting practices while also expressing a desire for affection (“Loved but I got no lover”) and her determination to persevere. As a music industry veteran (at only 21!) who made her international debut in 2013, Mirei champions looking beyond glossy facades and discovering one’s own definition of happiness.
