Track of the Day: Nicole Millar “I Should Probably Go to Therapy” (2020)

Running around the edges of her irrepressible indie-pop aesthetic Nicole Millar finds strength in the intensely personal with “I Should Probably Go to Therapy”.

Her first new music for 2020, the single is a follow-up to 2019’s excellent “Favours” and sheds some light on a trying time in Millar’s life and a conscious confrontation with one of the most glaring aspects of mental health stigma: going to therapy.

Nicole wrote the song alongside Muki and producer Kilter, putting it with colourful visuals by Nicholas Keays depicting Nicole and her dog Kodi.

“I wrote Therapy on my couch at a time when I felt like nobody was listening to what I had to say”, said Millar. “I felt I couldn’t trust anyone and everyone was asking too much of me. There is such a stigma behind going to therapy but I believe everyone should give it a go. It’s nice to talk to someone that won’t judge how you are feeling or even tell anyone.”
