Single of the week: Mila Webb – Masterpiece review

by Philip Moss

Such are the flaws in all human beings, looking for perfection in any kind of relationship can leave a person feeling empty. But LA songwriter, Mila Webb, presents herself as a realist on Masterpiece – the second single lifted from upcoming EP, Lucky Nights – meaning her search feels like an attainable one.

Seemingly not of our time, Webb’s voice, hazy and celestial, hovers over a backing track that recalls Tobias Jesso Jr’s Goon‘You don’t have to paint me a masterpiece / You don’t have to prove nothing to nobody,’ she sings as the song opens – its Paul McCartney-alike rambling bass line bringing colour to the shade to her late night California shade. Self-described as musical ‘late bloomer’, Masterpiece depicts Mila Webb as a very exciting proposition and a voice that could not have remained anonymous for long.

Lucky Nights is out 15th April via Perpetual Doom.
