Swedish teen artist Nova Miller drives us to the coastal verge of madness in her 60s-fashioned lyric video “Do It Myself” where we see clips of California road. Produced by The Monsters and the Strangerz (Zedd, Maren Morris, Arian Grande, Grey), the track has The Mamma’s & The Papa’s sample of “California Dreamin.” Smeared with tints of moodiness, “Do It Myself” is coated with retro gloss and hypnotic bursts of wooziness. Enjoy:
“‘Do It To Myself’ is not what you think it is. At first it’s a guitar-driven retro bop but it’s really about the worst form of going crazy, driving yourself crazy! 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. 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,” shared Nova.
Nova grew up under musical parents who have embedded her love for music at an early age. She was discovered by a music executive at the age of 12 and has spent most of her life in the studio and onstage. Now 18, Nova is already a seasoned artist who is continuously honing her sound.
