MILA SMITH - LIARS & FAKES

It can take some people a lifetime to learn how to spot the fakers, but at only sixteen Mila Smith has turned her bad friend blues into a banger. “Liars & Fakes”, the debut single from the South African songstress, is a soulful bop descended from disco edits of yore, complete with roller skates. The irresistible chorus is bound for your mind on the first spin and the lyrics are as relatable as they are quotable.

The music video opens with Mila at the service window of a roller diner preparing to serve superficial scenesters. Fed up by the first frame, her angsty eyeroll signaling she is already over feigning forced pleasantries. After a particularly snooty encounter with a dissatisfied customer the crew gets the signal to roll out of the restaurant and onto the town, breaking free from the expectations of people you just don’t need to please.

Everything about this debut is fun and funky fresh. It's a glittery, crowd pleasing song that lends itself to the modern Tik-Tok choreo sphere while maintaining that classic 70’s dance anthem nostalgia. The music world has much to look forward to with Mila Smith. Hangers-on won’t be holding her back, she’s riding high for the sky and rolling free.

  • SHY & D.R.S feat. JOSH SETTERFIELD - "FLEX"
    SHY & D.R.S feat. JOSH SETTERFIELD - "FLEX" Country has long been a polarizing, impenetrable genre subjugated to the “but..” of the sentence, “I listen to everything,”. In a time where cross-pollination is the only way to stay current, it's also a genre that has maintained its air of sovereignty, managing to slyly subvert the popsphere by pivoting… Read more

    XHAANIA - PULL UP The last party you attended may feel like a midday dream from a far off time when feeling yourself included nails done, hair done and everything did.
