When searching for a path to navigate through shame, grief, and the specific loneliness that accompanies you even in a crowded room, look no further than the lyrical map-making of Los Angeles based artist Miya Folick. Since her critically acclaimed debut album, Premonitions, came out in 2018, Miya has been traversing some challenges of her own. The kinds of challenges that probably feel acutely familiar to her fans. Letting yourself down, finding new ground, coming-of-age kind of challenges. They all appear with fierce clarity on Miya’s new EP, 2007. An exhilarating mix of sounds and styles, an eclecticism that reflects Miya’s increased writerly confidence and playful disposition. Like a lot of creatively restless minds, Miya has always felt drawn to intense emotions, intense people, and intense experiences. These gorgeous new songs — a long-awaited return from a singular talent — are about discovering that intensity doesn’t always equal chaos. Sometimes excitement and joy and humor can be found in the quiet, out-of-the-way places you never thought to look.
