      MIYA FOLICK

      with Barrie, Meernaa
      Miya Folicks debut album Premonitions out October 26, 2018 on Terrible Records and Interscope is a vision of a more compassionate human future. I wanted to imagine an existence thats more natural where we understand ourselves with more subtly, Folick says. On Premonitions, she creates a communal world where people care for each other, are demanding of each other, and, sometimes, just want to be alone.Pervading Folicks distilled, haunting, and emotionally immediate first two EPs -- Strange Darling (2015) and Give It To Me (2017) -- is a sense of deep empathy and desire for connection, but also a tendency toward solitude. Perhaps these themes can be traced to her upbringing in the Jdo Shinsh Buddhist tradition, where her parents taught her about living with mindfulness though, she says, she doesnt always remain true to this in her own life. Or, it could be from the eternal sense of not quite belonging that Folick has carried since growing up as a child of mixed heritage in the suburban neighborhoods of Santa Ana, California. Being an outsider created a tendency in Folick to observe the nuances of how others experience connection or lack thereof. Folick wanted to infuse Premonitions, alongside co-producers Justin Raisen and Yves Rothman, with a tactile and analogue quality that felt expansive but very personal. To that end, every sound on Premonitions is real made from acoustic instruments and then painstakingly crafted by the team, rather than being drawn from folders of pre-packaged samples. The result is a fusion of 90s rock a la The Cranberries with contemporary pop and hip-hop, an elegant canvas of ambient sonic textures through which Folicks voice cuts with stark confidence. While, sonically, the album feels capacious and lush, the lyrics focus in on the everyday, the painful, the mundane, the revelrous.
