Miki P & the Swallowtails – ‘Not Mine’ Song Premiere
The latest single from Miki P & the Swallowtails is a vehement proclamation of empowerment and restoration, wrapped in a sprightly chamber-pop package.
“Not Mine” was written by the band’s songwriter Miki P, about the realization of a manipulative relationship she experienced in her teenage years.
“I realized a lot about having healthy boundaries within familial relationships,” the songwriter said. “And how despite what I may see is best for others, I can’t change anyone except myself.”
Reinforced by Miki P’s unadulterated vocal presence and the buoyant melodies of The Swallowtails — all accomplished musicians from KC’s classical, jazz and folk scenes — the song deftly walks the listener through the stages of healing from trauma.
