Los Angeles indie rocker Petey has teamed up with Miya Folick for a new track. “‘Haircut’ is a very fun song I wrote with my friend Miya about getting an extreme haircut and not wanting to talk about it,” Petey explains. “I hope you like it. it was really fun to make. We recorded it in Miya’s apartment.”

Petey started this song and showed it to me. I immediately related,” Folick adds. “Just scroll through my feed to see a history of emotional haircuts. I really love the way it turned out. And it’s one of my mom’s favourite songs that I’ve made!”

“I was in a quarter-life crisis,” Petey sings on the track. “Remember that summer when I shaved my head/ Just to prove that I had control over something?” In the accompanying music video, Folick actually shaves her head. The synth-driven tune, which Petey and Folick co-wrote is a retrospective look back at the failed, spontaneous haircuts the pair have undergone. Furthermore, Folick really committed to the video, as she actually shaved her hair off for it. On the track, Folick joins Petey in his unique songwriting style: It seems like only a Petey song can reference both The Sims and Natalie Portman.

“Haircut” by Petey and Miya Folick  is out now on Terrible Records.
