MIYA FOLICK PREMIERES VIDEO FOR NEW VERSION OF “THINGAMAJIG”

CONFIRMS HEADLINE TOUR OF NORTH AMERICA NEXT YEAR

DEBUT ALBUM PREMONITIONS OUT NOW ON TERRIBLE RECORDS/INTERSCOPE RECORDS

“Both lyrically and vocally, Folick is a trapeze artist, plunging into uncertain, dark depths only to spring to the other side of the divide.” –Pitchfork

“[Miya] may take your breath away.” –NPR

“Miya Folick can predict the future and it’s as sunny as her pop songs” –i-D

“For a singer like a force of nature, Premonitions is a changing of seasons.” –Stereogum

“the kind of pipes that just don’t seem teachable.” –Paste

Rising songwriter and vocalist Miya Folick debuts her video for a new version of “Thingamajig” today—watch/share here. The new video, directed by Matt Hoffman and featuring choreography by Sarah C. Prinz, features an alternative piano and vocals version of the song. Recorded live on set, the new version of “Thingamajig” is available now—stream here.

Of the new version Folick says, “We wanted to make a version of “Thingamajig” that distilled it down to its core—the melody, the lyrics, the interplay between the harmonics and the voice, the apology. I’ve been feeling lately that there’s been a flurry of apologies in the news but rarely is there a true apology. We wanted to make a version of this song that felt quiet and patient, that took the time to express the gravity of sorry. Dennis Hamm played piano on the album version of the song, but we had never rehearsed this live version. We just showed up on set and played together. I think that’s the beautiful thing about music. It’s just people in a room reacting to each other with their instruments.”

Folick is also sharing dates for her first headlining tour of North America today. The tour will include stops in San Francisco, Seattle, Philadelphia, DC and New Orleans, see below for a list of dates.

Last night in Boston, Folick wrapped a North American tour in support of Pale Waves. Of Folick live Orlando Weekly praises, “a new voice who can balance smart pop aspiration with a cliff-diving finale of guitar crashes and yelling catharsis is someone to pay attention to.” Folick will continue touring in Europe with Sunflower Bean for the remainder of this year.

Premontions was co-produced with Justin Raisen (Sky Ferreira, Charli XCX, Santigold and Angel Olsen) and Yves Rothman. Album tracks include “Cost Your Love,” “Stop Talking,” “Deadbody” and “Stock Image,” the latter of which was hailed by Pitchfork as a “wholehearted pop joy.”

Raised in Santa Ana, CA, Los Angeles-based recording artist and performer Miya Folick first rose to public attention with her 2015 debut EP, Strange Darling, which drew praise from the likes of The New York Times and NPR, landed a featured spot in Netflix's hit show “13 Reasons Why,” and accumulated over 7 million Spotify streams to date. Her follow up, 2017's Give It To Me EP, captured the electric energy of her live performances and drew acclaim from NME, Refinery 29, Stereogum, DIY, Noisey and others. Folick has toured the world over and shared stages with Chairlift, Yeasayer, Kate Nash, Sleigh Bells and many more.
