EP Review Miya Folick - 2007

A solid collection of songs that wear their heart on their sleeve and capture the zeitgeist too.

Miya Folick - 2007

“Do I need God? / Who is God? / I’ve never had God” ruminates Miya Folick on ‘Oh God’, the opener of EP ‘2007’ – the California singer-songwriter’s first release since her 2018 debut album ‘Premonitions’. From Starbucks cold brew to trashy TV, ‘Oh God’ reflects the humdrum reality of 2022, and perfectly encapsulates the all-too-common feeling that, while still being young, you’ve not quite done enough with your life yet. ‘Bad Thing’ is livelier, almost HAIM-esque, while ‘Nothing To See’ is a little slower again, with a noughties-style sound. Miya moves from indie pop (‘Oh God’) to pop-rock (‘Nothing To See’) to dreamy, soulful folk (‘Ordinary’), and she proves more than adept at everything she puts her hand to. Altogether, this is a solid collection of songs that wear their heart on their sleeve and capture the zeitgeist too.
