Based on real stories, this song calls out to all women encouraging them to feel empowered and speaking out against gender bias and everyday sexism.


I’m amped, I’m mic-ed, I’m set to strike, I’m wired up
I raise my hands, you dance, I got you fired up
The room is mine, it’s fine until it’s time to put the lights up
Suddenly you think you own me

You slide up with a wink, you think you’re scoring
It never crossed your mind I’d find you boring
A spent old innuendo but I’ve heard them all before
And you wonder why you’re feeling lonely

Assume I need help, assume I can’t play
Dismiss what I do and I think and I say
I’m watching my mouth as you’re watching me walking away

Sing until you drown out
The things that bring you down now

She’s walking past those guys, her eyes are forward
Her jaw is tight, he likes to make her awkward
A comment on her body like she’s bothered what he thought
But suddenly her palms are sweating

But looking at his face it’s very clear
If she let him try then he’d have no idea
So sometimes it’s just easier to let him have his leer
They both know that’s all he’s getting

The headphones are silent, you stare at your phone
Clench up your fists and pretend you’re alone
The trolls on the bridge fade away as they follow you home


The self esteem in magazines they want you to buy
New ways to tell you how to try to look like you don’t try
Be thin but also curvy with a gap between your thighs
Don’t look fake but do wear make-up, don’t be keen but always smile
Dress your age but wear your face cream, fill your wrinkles til they shine
Silver hair is trendy now but not the natural kind
Be strong and be successful but don’t ever show your pride
Always sexy never sexual, the mistress and the wife

Keep them dancing.
That’s the ethos that The Rin Tins have kept since their inception in early 2011 and since then the sextet have strutted from one stage to another playing high octane gypsy swing to the party hard masses.
With music that combines 5 part harmonies with swing jazz rhythms and pounding oompa beats, for 7 years they've been filling dance floors & festival tents across the UK.
