Review: "Fake a Smile" - Ella Lockert

Once a cheater, always a cheater. "Fake a Smile" by Ella Lockert takes this famous saying and puts it into a song. It's easy to get tangled up in a person who manipulates you into thinking they've changed; that because they're with you that means they're a better person. Come to find out they're just as much of a liar as they always have been. But instead of feeling sad and moping around because you were cheated on, 'Fake a Smile' puts a new perspective on how to react to a cheater. Make them feel like they're losing more by losing you, than you will by losing them. Acting unbothered by someone who intended to hurt you is the best payback there is.

Ella takes inspiration from the 90s to create this unique pop influenced punk bop! Heavy distorted bass and percussion puts this song into high energy, making you feel every single emotion that Ella intends you to. If you've been betrayed in a relationship, you may have found yourself wanting to laugh in your ex's face and show them how much better off you've been without them. Ella adds this 'HAHA IN YOUR FACE' kind of forced laughter within the hook of her song, giving listeners the satisfaction of getting back at those who have hurt you.
