Any of you loyal PopShade readers out there (and I'm sure there are plenty of you ;) ) will know that the lovely Mila Falls was our first ever interview here on the site. I owe a lot to her, as she gave the site the kind of boost it needed when we first started up. So, thankyou Mila!
Back then, Mila was just starting out as such. She had a few brilliant acoustic tracks on her YouTube, and a few teasers of her new singles. But that was enough to wet our appetites. We wanted more, now we get more. Believe me guys, the wait was worth it! Mila has recently released the video for her first major video "Party In The Stars", and it's pretty amazing. Mila's back to answer a few questions about what she's been up to lately, so, let's see what she had to say...
Hey Mila! It's been a little while since we've spoke! What have you been up to since out last chat?
I have been VERY busy playing loads of live shows and finishing my debut album.
Okay, we have to say, your new video for Party In The Stars is one of the greatest videos we've ever seen! Where did the concept for the song & video come from?
THANK YOU! …The director Tobias Marshall and I dreamed it up. I have always loved Red Dwarf, Mighty Moosh and Button Moon. So it is a mix of all of those! We wanted to make something that contrasted all the other videos at the moment. So we thought we would take you all to outta space...The outfits were sketched by me and then brought to life by costume designer Petra... It was seriously the best 4 days of filming EVER. I can't wait to do it all over again when I film my music video for STARLIGHT!
Was the "alien hoe down" as fun as it looked?
Oooooo yea! I challenge you to find another song with the lyric “alien hoe down in it!”
You're clearly full of amazing, creative ideas, but, is this just the start of what we can expect from you?
Well, I would like to think so yea! I don’t feel like I’ve really let loose creatively yet. I have a lot of ideas that is for SURE! It takes time gathering the right team for photo shoots and videos so I have to learn to be patient. (A thing that doesn’t come naturally to me haha)
Do you plan to throw any "parties in the stars" anytime soon?
We are in talks about throwing a party in London for “PARTY IN THE STARS” combined with an album preview played live with full band and special guests. Watch this space!
Finally, you're clearly getting more and more attention with each release, but how will you know when you've finally made it?
I think “made it” is an odd one to grasp, people get lost when trying to get to a place that doesn't exist. I’m playing shows to crowds of 50 thousand people this summer, if someone had said I would be doing that last year I would have thought they were joking. Life is good at the moment. Overall, I just wanna keep doing what I’m doing but on a bigger scale. Live shows, radio shows, fan competitions, making music videos and releasing music! Lets take it WORLDWIDE!
I'd like to thank Mila again for answering these questions!
Well, there you go. One of our favorite ladies in pop at the minute has a lot up her sleeve, and we simply can't wait to see more of what she has on offer. Check out her amazing new video up above, and buy the mini single/EP off iTunes!
