“Those vocals are magnetic!! A groove I could get down to on a Friday arvo, but also a Monday morning! Strong topic, but the song gives me “Feel good” energy!” – 4/5 stars

Sydney-based, Scandi-born pop songstress Mila Nile has just revealed her tantalising new single ‘Don’t Need Your Love’ – produced by LA-based collaborator HVTCH.
Enveloping the listener in alluring samples and deft percussion, ‘Don’t Need Your Love’ is a liberating slice of dance-pop that invigorates and builds through luscious basslines and syncopated beats. As the track unfolds, its dynamic choruses crescendo towards its rapid bridge and cathartic dance floor-filler finale.
Mila talks about the meaning behind ‘Don’t Need Your Love’:
“It’s about a toxic relationship, but not with a person, with a feeling – validation. 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.”
Previous releases have been widely embraced by Australian radio stations triple j, triple j Unearthed, FBi, 4ZZZ, JOY FM and 96.5 Inner FM. They’ve also seen support from blogs Fashion Journal, Purple Sneakers, Project U, POPMUZIK (SWE), Women in Pop, Tone Deaf and Futuremag Music.
Mila co-writes all of her music with her partner Simon, taking influence from pop icons Lorde, Tove Styrke and Broods. “I find my sound is heavily influenced by the Australasian and Scandinavian sound”, she explains. “I like to think of myself as a musical hybrid, blending the brooding pop sensibilities of the North with the bright, sizzling sounds of the South.”
Outside of music, Mila works across various artistic pursuits, “I work as a photographer, mostly in fashion, but I also love portraiture and working with small businesses. I love realising a designer’s, artist’s or business owner’s vision through the visual medium”, she adds.
In the coming weeks, Mila Nile will reveal an accompanying music video for ‘Don’t Need Your Love’.
