WATCH: Millie Turner - 'Eye of the Storm'

This new Millie Turner track has been on my list of things to write about for a few weeks (oh, reader, if you could see the backlog...) Since first listening it has been circling in my head intermittently. I popped it onto the new girls allowed playlist I've created where I'm celebrating some of my favourite women in music alongside new discoveries for me, in an effort to diversify my listening habits (as written about here) - but knew that I wanted to share it to the blog if I found the time. So: here it is!

The title track of Millie's forthcoming mixtape, due next March, Eye of the Storm is a four minute earworm (you've been warned.) Written after a 24 hour plane ride to the other side of the world, the track is euphoric, an emotion we haven't seen much of this year. A track to make pop fans sad (again) about the lack of festivals this year - this is sure to be a crowd pleaser once Millie gets back to the stage.

Talking about the track, Millie shares that "the entire process of writing it was a blur amongst illness, homesickness, heartache and jet lag, but for me, that's the beauty of the song. The eye of the storm is a focus point amidst the storm where everything around you feels out of control and chaotic, which is what I wanted to capture in the urgency of the drums and the chorus. There's something beautiful about chaos when you have that focal point of calm that you can grow from."
