Songwriter/producer Meija has spent the last few years sharing his talents with the likes of Your Smith, Bay Ledges, and Quinn XCII, but he's also been hiding some incredible music up his sleeves, including his brand new single 'Laugh It Off'. He's also working on an EP, which is yet to be named and is due for release in the coming months.

'Laugh It Off' is an honest and unapologetic exploration of the current political climate within the US, where Meija and many others have found themselves frustrated, disappointed and dishearted by how hateful messages are spread rapidly through memes and horrid attempts at making light of serious issues. On the track, he said, "I first wrote the chorus to 'Laugh It Off' during the 2016 presidential debates. It was really upsetting to see how humor and memes were successfully used to spread hateful speech and ideas. 'Laugh It Off' is a song about how some things are too serious and hurtful just to laugh and shrug off even if that helps you avoid an uncomfortable conversation."
