Shitty Interview No.81

Its hard to believe its already been over a year since I first had the pleasure of meeting & working with Sydney artist, Nicole Millar. She sticks in your mind like semen to a tube sock because in addition to being incredibly talented & so naturally beautiful, she is an absolute sweetheart. But don’t let that soft exterior fool you into thinking she doesn’t know her way around the male dominated music industry. Nicole continues to release effortlessly cool & catchy tracks, to follow up viral hits like ‘Tremble’ & ‘Signals’.

Nicole’s latest release, ‘Blindfolded’ (enclosed), is built on sultry synth beats & her tantalising vocals, delivering a pure electro-pop escape just in time for summer.

Co-produced by Kilter, it also sees her dial down the banging drops that defined her early career – on Peking Duk’s club classic ‘High’, Golden Feature’s ‘Tell Me’ & her own songs. This time around, the Sydney singer/songwriter wanted her lyrics to take centre stage.

Not surprisingly, ‘Blindfolded’ is her most personal song to date. Reading like a page ripped from her diary, it details the dangers of playing games in relationships when you don’t see eye to eye.

‘Blindfolded’ offers the first glimpse of her long-awaited debut album, one she’s been gently teasing for ages. That wait is almost over.

In the meantime, please enjoy our Sticks & Stones Shitty Interview 🙂
