Last autumn Los Angeles-based musician Miya Folick released a new EP, Give It To Me, which was lauded asamong the best EPs Of 2017. Today, Folick has followed that up with a brand-new song called “Deadbody” which was co-written by her and Justin Raisen. It’s a skeletal track that builds to a towering chorus where Folick gets to show off her capacious voice: “Over my dead body,” she sings, booming drums behind her. It’s a wall of pure power. Here’s what she had to say about the song:

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. I wanted to growl and be demanding and defiant. ‘Deadbody’ was meant for me and you to sing together, to make us feel empowered, strong, and exhilarated by our own resilience.

Deadbody came from a place of frustration. I needed something to sing that felt hopeful but fierce. I wanted to growl and be demanding and defiant. I wanted something clear and stark. I made Deadbody for you and me to sing together, to remind us of our power, our strength, and our resilience. I want you to sing it loud and hold it in your heart. I made it for you

Thank you so much to my producer team @justinraisen @yves_above_so_below @lukeniccoli and to @terriblerecords for making this with me. And thanks to Waverly Mandel for the beautiful artwork.
