Vocalist, songwriter and producer Miya Folick has shared a new song ‘Mommy’ co-produced by Folick and Gabe Wax (War on Drugs, Fleet Foxes) and featuring saxophone from Sam Gendel. The new track is taken from Folick’s forthcoming album Roach released on May 26 via Nettwerk.
“‘Mommy is maybe the most intimate song on my record,” Folick says. “It’s about heritage, memory, and family. I think there’s an ache in the song that exposes the gap between my limited understanding of my parents and the full richness of their lives. The first time I played this song live was at The Echo in Los Angeles, and my mom showed up—not joking—with a jar of honey for me, to soothe my throat (you’ll understand this anecdote when you listen to the song).”
