Mila Smith has today released “Liars and Fakes”, her debut single as a solo artist. “Liars and Fakes” is a soulful slice of upbeat pop music about being let down by friends.
The video for the single was written and directed by Anna Telford and Felix Seuffert of Butterfly Films in Cape Town, best known for their work for the likes of BMW and the WWF.
Mila says about the song: “’Liars and Fakes’ is a song I hope everyone can bop along to. The title of the song is relatively self-explanatory – it calls out the liars and the fakes. It was written about someone who communicated with me very superficially and only associated with me for their own gain, rather than chasing a genuine friendship”.
Growing up on a varied diet of artists including Adele, Beyoncé, Dua Lipa and The Neighbourhood, Mila has surrounded herself with music from an early age and began writing her own music at 8-years-old, playing the piano by ear and composing her own songs. By the age of 11 Mila had formed her own indie-pop band and they released their debut EP, “Possibility”, in 2016, the lead single of which “Just Kids” gained radio play and press coverage across South Africa.
