19 year old Molly Burman made a striking first impression with her debut single proper, “Fool Me With Flattery”, arriving as she did a fully formed prospect last month. Today, she follows up that significant promise with a further slice of empowering, woozy slacker-pop in “everytime”.

 

In Molly’s own words:

 

” ‘everytime’ is about my sad excuse for a love life. I used to be so obsessed with dating and getting validation from guys, but they just kept ghosting me. It got to a point where I realised I needed to accept that I was going to be on my own for a while and might as well start loving my own company. It’s like a sort of love letter to myself, always there to remind me that I am enough and I am exactly what I want.”

 

“everytime” is paired to a video from her friend and collaborator Harvey Frost, who created the setup in Brighton. It backs up the homespun, bedroom-pop feel to Molly’s output, starting as it does from the bedroom at his home.

As well as her new single, Molly today also announces her first EP, “Fool Me With Flattery”, a collection of songs she has written over the last couple of years and recorded and co-produced at home alongside her father. It will be released August 20th via Prolifica Inc.

 

This is what Molly says about the EP:


“These songs explore the themes of being deceived and disrespected and the EP follows my journey from craving acceptance from others, to finally accepting myself. I feel like I’ve grown a lot with this EP and I hope that others can relate to this journey too.”

 

The “Fool Me With Flattery” EP will be a surefire introduction to her sound, and will mark the first collection of songs to land from Molly later this year. Pandemic allowing, live shows will follow.
