Now commanding over 300k monthly listeners on Spotify alone, it’s safe to say Molly Hammar’s momentum is accelerating at an impressive pace. Her music has spread like wildfire all across Europe over the last year, and together with iconic french producer Bob Sinclair she even landed the top spot on Italian radio with ‘We Could Be Dancing’.
The release of new single ‘Tell Her’ will only continue push this artist into receiving the recognition she deserves. On the song, she says:
“‘Tell Her’ is written and based on a vision I’ve had about all the people who stay in relationships just because they feel comfortable and safe. The song is an anthem about how great things could be if you leave it for something that could potentially be amazing.”
The Swedish songstress has already received acclaim from the likes of BBC, Beats 1, Billboard, NYLON and Complex, and collaborated with the likes of Big Narstie and Ella Eyre.
I’ve made no secret of the fact that Molly Hammar is one of my favourite Swedish talents from recent years. The winner of last year’s ‘Breakthrough of the Year’ at the coveted Swedish awards Rockbjörnen, she returns with the sensational ‘Friends’ today.
A finessed slice of RnB-pop infused with hints of soul, Hammar delivers a song that looks at a common situation most of us have fallen into:
“‘Friends’ is about not wanting to feel lonely and romanticising a friendship that shouldn’t be any more than that, just because you don’t want to feel alone. Sometimes it is just better to accept people and relationships for what they are and move on.”
Another showstopper from Swedish pop-RnB powerhouse, Molly Hammar.
“I think everyone struggles with loneliness. Sometimes you love it, sometimes you hate it. ‘‘Alone’ is about someone trying to escape loneliness and hurting people along the way. If this song can become a wake-up call for someone to deal with their emotional life better, or if someone can find comfort in gaining some perspective in themselves I have achieved my goal with “Alone”.
