Mylie Taylor Confronts Mental Health on Vulnerable New Single “Better Yet”
20-year-old Mylie Taylor is a Toronto-based artist drawing inspiration from the 90’s grunge rock scene. Her writing puts a spotlight on the darkest parts of life, with all of her songs relating back to mental health as a core theme. She shares the most vulnerable parts of herself, discussing topics many view as uncomfortable: mental illness, addiction, and death.
“Wish I didn’t hate getting older, so many didn’t get the chance,” she sings on “Better Yet,” a heavy song with complex emotions surrounding mental health.
““Better Yet” is a heavy song, but it’s honest. I hope that this song can help you on your journey if you’re not feeling better yet either. All of my songs relate back to mental health as a core theme. I find myself writing about my mental health a lot because it helps me understand what I’m going through when I write about it.”
