The EP title song, «Wild One», music video was released on 18th May 2018.
The opening song and title track Wild One can be described as a song of empowerment for the LGBTQ community. The song was produced by London based Moseley who also mastered the EP.
The accompanying music video for «Wild One», shows Smashby portraying a mythical creature captured in a net trying to break free. It cuts to a scene where Smashby is trolled online for his sexuality something he drew from personal experience. Followed by a coming out scene in which Smashby is thrown out by his on screen father played by Tim Walker. Towards the end of the video we see Smashby sat in glittery black bath water scrubbing off hateful words that are written on his body.
Smashby collaborated with a number of producers including Moseley, Luke Jackson and Monkey Harper.
After the first listening, I’ve feeling empowered and that was Smashby’s point with the song. I’m sure this song will be requested a lot on the radio and you’ll will soon see Smashby at a pride near you. Looking forward to hear the rest of the EP, this are very promising.
I feel like this EP finally showcases my talent and diversity as an artist, especially on Wild One, it’s the anthem my 13 year old self needed.
I really hope it helps people, anyone who’s going through something hard in their life. I want them to turn this record on and feel empowered.
