Nova Miller releases thrift shop pop bop “I Do It to Myself” in US

Staff Writer

Nova Miller’s debut US track “I Do It to Myself” is a catchy bop that laments overthinking a relationship and sabotaging it yourself before someone can hurt you first.

“It’s really about driving yourself crazy,” Miller said. It’s about being a creature of habit when it comes to relationships and not even giving the other person a chance to hurt you because you’ve already messed it up for yourself. Basically, it’s that “it’s not you, it’s me” thing but I’m working on myself and things can only get better.”

Music has always been a part of Miller’s life. The multi-instrumentalist and five-octave vocalist was discovered in a Stockholm dance studio at age 12. 

“I Do It to Myself” blends new school pop with aesthetics of the 60s, such as guitar strings and harmonies of groups from that era. Miller’s song samples “California Dreamin’” by The Mamas and the Papas.

“My favorite part of the song is the California Dreaming reference like the layered vintage vocals that take you all the way to summer and back,” Miller said.
