Nicole Millar delivers her most personal song yet on new banger, ‘Blindfolded’
From her breakout singles ‘Tremble’ and ‘Signals’, we knew NICOLE MILLAR was bound for big things, but her latest single, ‘Blindfolded’ highlights just how big she really can be. Being her most personal song to date, it is also her most explosive and the most indicative of her true powers as a songwriter.
Serving as the first taste of her forthcoming debut album which she’s been writing over the past few years, this single sees her team up with KILTER for production duties to allow her to really shine. Electro-pop at its true finest, ‘Blindfolded’ provides an insight into a fragile relationship, and the dangers of playing games when you’re on the brink of ending it altogether. Not afraid to delve into her vulnerabilities, Millar puts her insecurities on full display here. “The second verse reflects my side of the story, where I’m overthinking it and scared I’ll lose him,” Millar confided. “Showing all of yourself to someone can be very scary and make you feel vulnerable. But, if you don’t share your secrets, how can you ever change? I’ve learnt from experience.”
Accompanied by a new video as well, the visuals further depict the emotional nature of Millar‘s work here. Highlighting the dishonesty of her partner and the consequent anxiety, jealousy, sadness and ultimate anger, it tracks the stages of a fractured relationship until its complete demise. “I find it really hard to trust people as most men in my life have let me down,” she reveals candidly. “This song definitely draws on that. The feeling that someone isn’t being completely honest and they’re hiding something from you.”
With Kilter‘s dynamic beats providing the perfect ground for Millar to do her thing, she is stronger than ever here in ‘Blindfolded’. Despite its less-than-positive subject matter, the sheer pop goodness of this single will definitely make it a song for the summer. While there’s no date set for her debut album, if this is anything at all to go by, it’ll definitely be worth the wait!
