Miya Folick shares new song and video “Ordinary”

June 10, 2022—Much-lauded vocalist, songwriter and producer Miya Folick shares a new song, “Ordinary,” today with a video directed by Noah Kentis—watch here and listen here. Singer-songwriter Gia Margaret adds piano to the acoustic track, on which Folick sings, “Our life is small but it’s big enough for me.”

“This song is about slowing down, looking inward, taking time with the people you love,” says Folick. “Things don’t have to be a party or a spectacle. They don’t have to be special to feel special. Rather than finding joy in rushing into things, I’m finding joy in patience, in quiet, in getting to know somebody slowly.”

“When I first heard ‘Ordinary,’ I felt moved by its sweet melody and the direct and simple sentiment of the lyrics,” says Margaret. “The piano parts effortlessly flowed soon after my friend (Miya) asked me to lend my part. It was fun and made me feel something.”

“Ordinary” follows Miya’s recent return with “Oh God,” her first new music in three years. Both tracks are taken from a forthcoming EP on Nettwerk. Miya just played shows with Sir Chloe in L.A. and Years & Years in New York, following up recent dates with Lucy DacusBand of HorsesIan Sweet and more. 

Raised in Santa Ana, CA and now living in Los Angeles, Folick first attracted acclaim with two EPs, 2015’s Strange Darling and 2017’s Give It To Me EP. Folick’s 2018 Terrible Records/Interscope debut album Premonitions drew critical praise from NPR, GQ, Pitchfork, The FADER and many more; landed her a Tiny Desk Concert for NPR and saw her sell out headline shows and play festivals the world over.
