“Stock Image” is wholehearted pop song, co-produced by Folick, Yves Rothman, and Justin Raisen (Sky Ferreira’s Night Time, My Time, Angel Olsen’s My Woman). Opening with lilting chimes and vocal coos, it quickly floors the gas to reveal an exuberant 1980s pop heart and a bassline with the same propulsive thrill of Robyn’s “Dancing on My Own.” Briefly, Folick dwells on sticky feelings of malaise—“Bathe myself in the afternoon/Won’t get out until the water’s cold and I am blue”—but she makes the decision to shake them off and “open up the door.” As drums boom, the song ramps into a driving synth chorus, with a swirling constellation of zippy electronic sounds, and Folick’s piercing voice scales giddy heights. In an excellent accompanying video, Folick dances through New York streets, showing familiar locales like Central Park and Brooklyn Bridge with an infectious, bright-eyed wonder, “Stock Image” is an alluring, catchy as hell invitation to join Folick in her heady worldview, and a reminder that everything can look better when seen through fresh eyes. It might even make you want to dance in the streets, too.

Stock Image is the conversation you have with yourself when you’re feeling lost and your color has faded. When you’re too focused on inhabiting a certain image and then suddenly you realize your insides are empty! I wrote it from a place of feeling shallow and gray and wanting to feel Full! Vibrant! I hope it makes you feel lush and colored in
