Miya Folick has shared new single ‘Thingamajig’! Quickly gaining admirers across the globe, Miya Folick’s bold, operatic vocals are both divine and burly. Toggling from the angelic pop heights of “Stock Image” and the intoxicating delicate vocal loops of “Thingamajig” to the tempestuous, #MeToo-inspired call to arms of “Deadbody” and the fierce, buoyant “Freak Out,” worthy of closing the world’s greatest party, Folick is nothing if not dynamic. Premonitions proves she’s capable of framing her otherworldly, glistening pop as both intimate, grounding inner monologues and towering pop epics. The one constant is her success in morphing from one sound to another without having to bend over backwards in a way that feels gimmicky or jarring.

The new track follows on from her previous singles ‘Stop Talking’, ‘Stock Image’and ‘Deadbody’ and is taken from her debut album, ‘Premonitions’, due out 26th October. The album was co-produced with Justin Raisen (Sky Ferreira, Charli XCX, Santigold and Angel Olsen) and Yves Rothman.

‘Thingamajig’ is the opening track of the album and is a slower, more contemplative cut than some of her recent upbeat releases. Along with the track, Miya has shared a note explaining the meaning behind the song.

“Maybe you made a grave mistake out of selfishness or ignorance,” she explains. ”Maybe you were sheltered from the truth, maybe you couldn’t see the lessons presented to you. Maybe you ignored them deliberately. Imagine, next, that someone hurt you in the same way you hurt others and you were forced to confront the cruelty of your actions. That is ‘Thingamajig’. ‘Thingamajig’ is the deepest apology.”


Thank you to everyone listening to and sharing Thingamajig. The day we recorded it, I was lifted out of my body for a moment and when I came back I was crying. I felt so overwhelmed by the magic of music in my life and so grateful to have been a part of such a beautiful song with Justin Raisen, Luke Niccoli and Yves Rothman.
