Emotional, raw and beautifully resilient, Miya Folick‘s latest single ‘Nothing To See’ is a tender ode to rediscovering yourself in the aftermath of a painful breakup. Taken from her new EP 2007, which is set for release on 9th September via Nettwerk, through her clear vocals, candid lyrics and considered instrumentation, Folick accepts that love makes fools of us all, and gracefully reclaims the time she spent changing herself to suit the needs of an unappreciative lover.
“This song is about falling in love with someone emotionally unavailable,” explains the LA based songwriter. “Someone whose feelings and desires were so obscured to me and themselves, that I had to become a detective. I studied their life for clues and tried to fit the role of the person I thought they’d like. Eventually we broke up, and I realized that I’d lost the plot on my own life. My body and personality and life were so populated by the interests of this person, that once they were gone, there was nothing left to see. But, to me, this song isn’t bleak. I think there’s power in being brave enough to say ‘I was made a fool by you.’”
Despite the single’s painful context, ‘Nothing To See’ is a merciful, cathartic offering that reminds listeners that whilst unhealthy romantic infatuation can be draining, there’s comfort in knowing you can break free from the toxic cycle and rediscover your autonomy in the aftermath. This type of personal epiphany permeates the tracks on Folick’s upcoming EP, 2007, on which she scrutinises and forgives herself for feeling things so intensely.
