Vocalist, songwriter and producer Miya Folick has unveiled a new, self-produced song, ‘Cockroach’. The new track is taken from Folick’s forthcoming album, Roach, released on May 26 via Nettwerk.
“I love this song and I am addicted to it,” Folick says. “I wrote the melody and lyrics for ‘Cockroach’ driving home from a friend’s house. It was May 2021, and I was feeling like I had spent the last couple years continuously dragging myself back up onto my feet after getting knocked around by life and circumstances out of my control (I think others may be able to relate). I got home and quickly made a demo of the melody with the keyboard parts and the guitar line. I thought it would be an interesting interlude or intro for the record, but it became something so much more powerful. I asked Sam KS to play some simple drums on it and he ended up playing this in one take, transforming the song into something that feels anthemic in its own odd way.”
