EP Review: Nicole Millar ‘Tremble’
You probably know her voice from Peking Duk’s High but Sydney’s Nicole Millar has just released her first solo EP.
Celebrating the four-track new release the electronica artist has announced an Australia-wide tour and dropped a creepy-cool new video to accompany the title track Tremble.
“Tremble shows off some cool synths and beats, starting off slowly and building up the tempo until it reaches a rave-tastic drop.”
The first track off the EP, Wait, was released back in October as a teaser for the EP’s release in February. The song isn’t the strongest track of the EP, being a little bit slow and softer than the others, but still has a cool bassline with some catchy lyrics-” You don’t have to wait, you don’t have to wait”.
The title track Tremble shows off some cool synths and beats, starting off slowly and building up the tempo until it reaches a rave-tastic drop. The track has lots of layers and some really cool percussions in the background, making it a really engaging listen.
Third track Cover Me, while it strays from her usual style of progression, is still an electrifying track with some cool drops and playful basslines. This track in particular shows off her soft, smooth, and sultry vocals which complete her sound.
The Zone finishes off the EP, but it’s a bit of a fizzer compared with the rest of the EP. It builds up to an awesomely fast and energising beat and the vocals are still beautiful and smooth sounding. However, these elements together for some reason just sound boring.
