Sydney-based, Scandi-born pop rising star Mila Nile is dropping an intoxicating new single dubbed ‘Don’t Need Your Love’ this Friday and we’ve got your exclusive premiere right here.
Taking influence from pop icons such as Lorde, Tove Styrke and Broods, Nile combines percussion-fuelled minimalistic pop prowess with empowering lyrics about defining your own self perception in today’s social media minefield.
“It’s about a toxic relationship, but not with a person, with a feeling – validation,” she explains.
“I wrote ‘Don’t Need Your Love’ as an anthem to remind myself that I’m good enough and that my worth isn’t based on others’ perceptions of me. Some days can feel like every mirror shows you’re not good enough, every app tells you’re not interesting enough, and people in your life can make you feel not worthy enough. If you make music, it sometimes feels like every part of the industry is telling you you’re not talented enough.”
Take it for a spin below.
