Currently on tour with Kate Nash, LA’s own Miya Folick has released a video for her recent single ‘Deadbody’. The arresting single-take video highlights the tension at the heart of the songs lyrical themes, with Folick commenting “I wrote ‘Deadbody’ after reading article after article about people’s exploitation by people and power structures, and then talking to my friends about our own heavy experiences. I felt defeated by the weight and pervasiveness of the system we are fighting. I needed something to sing that felt hopeful but fierce. To me, the song is an outward expression of a very internal shift from passivity to power. We wanted to make a video that explored how power can be quiet, private, almost imperceptible. It’s meant to express that you don’t have to shout to be strong. Though it does feel good.”
It’s taught, emotive songwriting, with Folicks vocal often soaring and full expression and feeling over this gently pulsating indie post-punk (with a soft p or two in there) backing.
