Girli at the Troubadour: Rising electropop star girli (stylized lower case) recently told this writer that her songs “are about how I was experiencing my queerness at that time, how heartbreak was tearing me apart but also rebuilding me better, about experiencing healthy love for the first time, my struggles with my mental health, learning self-love and healing from everything.” Experience her own musical therapy at the Troubadour.

A press release for her Why Am I Like This?? EP reads, “Milly Toomey (AKA girli) has been on an explorative journey of self-discovery, only to conclude that she can’t be boxed in. The singer-songwriter had been questioning who she was and had put so much pressure on knowing the answer, but soon realised it’s okay to not always know. To mark this epiphany, girli wrote the music she has always wanted to release and the outcome is this accomplished, unapologetically pop-laden EP.”

Tillie also performs.

Girli at the Troubadour: The event takes place at 7 p.m. on Thursday, February 22 at the Troubadour.
