Last October, Miya Folick released her debut album Premonitions. Already seeing success on her earlier EPs, the anticipation for that debut was slowly getting hyped up around the more indie music community. Naturally, it totally delivered what many came to see as Folick’s best qualities, except even better. Although it may not have seen as much coverage as it deserved, the album was largely well received. And it makes whatever she does next likely to be the one that really breaks her out to more ears. Luckily for all of us, though, we don’t have to wait to hear what that next thing is. Because today Folick shared a brand new single titled “Malibu Barbie.”
”Malibu Barbie” may not be the start of an album cycle, that’s true. At this point, she hasn’t stated whether or not it is. But she’s done a fair bit of hyping it up on her social media profiles. Leading up to its release, she shared bits of sentences that form into a full press statement about the song’s subject matter:
”I grew up with an absence of beauty language. My mom never spoke of being pretty, or being ugly, or needing to lose weight. I think the absence created a vacuum. When the language introduced itself, I sucked it in and let those words fill every nook and cranny of my brain. Until my every thought and feeling was soaked in it. This beauty language. So I hope you can understand that I didn’t have a choice. I had to kill it.”
And aside from that nice tease of a song, Miya Folick proves once again that she is at a flourishingly creative period as the new track further exemplifies her knack for writing a damn good song.
