The Departure of Briana Corrigan

The emotional intensity of the songs in Miaow led to the departure of the group's first female singer, Briana Corrigan. When Heaton shared the songs, including "Mini-correct" and "Worthless Lie," with her, she made the tough decision to part ways with the band. But out of this departure emerged the talented Jacqui Abbott, who would go on to leave her mark on every album up to Painting It Red.

Chart-Topping Success and Memorable Singles

Miaow reached an impressive number six on the UK Album Charts, proving its widespread appeal and resonating with audiences. The album spawned three unforgettable singles: "Good as Gold," "Everybody's Talkin'," and "Prettiest Eyes." Each song tells a unique story and showcases the versatility and depth of The Beautiful South's sound.
