Music critics love making a lot of hay out of the fact Miya Folick was raised as a Jōdo Shinshū Buddhist—a practice which obviously informs her thoughtful, meditative lyrics. But not enough is written about her sass! Her music—especially the songs from her latest release, Premonitions—thrum and soar thanks to her energetic soprano and bouncy, inventive pop orchestration. But a closer listen and read of her lyrics also shows how exceedingly clever and funny she is. In “Stop Talking,” which documents our universal need to go on and on about men who aren’t worth anyone’s time, Folick writes, “I generally don't like to talk about the idiosyncrasies of an obvious fool/It's clear to me he's not worth your energy.” So yes, Folick is self-aware, but she also uses this awareness like a scalpel, cutting through the bullshit humans hold on to, and does so with friendly, intelligent radio pop that’s full of empathy and fun.
