Molly Hammar – FRIENDS

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.”

Taken from the sophomore EP, ‘God Is lonely Too’ which is out now via Cosmos Music.

Violet Skies – Lonely (feat. Molly Hammar)

A beautifully simple yet highly-charged ballad featuring two gorgeous vocals that tells of that all too familiar feeling of heartbreak.

Molly Hammar – Alone

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”.

Live: Molly Hammar at Colours Hoxton

Swedish RnB talent Molly Hammar’s debut London performance took place at Colours Hoxton last night and it was one of the best showcases I’ve caught this year.

This kid owns the stage and the vocal range on her is nothing short of immense. Top tracks performed included pop banger ‘Words’ and racy ‘Bathtub Moments’.
