“Stop talking about that boy”, says Miya Folick on one of the singles of her debut Premonitions… She says it to the typical friend who will not stop going on and on about a person who is just not right for them. But she says it for their own good, because sometimes we build our personality on what we say rather than what we want to be. Folick wants to be lots of things. Half Japanese and half Russian, she was educated as a Buddhist and later taught classical singing (from Mozart to French arias) until she decided to start a band. She got a friend to teach her guitar and set up a Tinder profile to recruit the other band members. The result are eclectic and vibrant pop songs that have earned her comparisons to Sinéad O’Connor and Dolores O’Riordan. But she has that unique intuition, as well as an incredible voice, that sets her apart from anybody else. Honesty above all else.
