Chilled Swedish pop vibes.
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’.
Swedish RnB with an undercurrent of coolness that could only be achieved in that unique Scandinavian way.
The more I listen to this song the more beautiful it gets… I hope you give it as many spins as I have…
“The song’s also about what we call ‘perfect’ these days, superficial stuff doesn’t really matter in the end. We’re all stuck in the social media wave and sometimes we should take a step back and remember to not take it all so seriously.”
“We worked in this beautiful little studio in East London that overlooked a cobbled courtyard, just on piano for most of the day which is my fave way to write songs. At the time I was really interested in the idea of a career woman giving up on love because she just felt she wasn’t invited to the table. The cliché of the lonely female boss that is familiar, yet comfortable, because you don’t have to risk your heart — in many ways it was personal experience. Until someone comes along to challenge that paradigm and you realise you have to jump in even though you feel like you can’t.” – AlunaGeorge
“It’s always inspiring to work with such incredible talented people, Aluna and Joacim went beyond what I could ever have hoped for. I think we really nailed all the parts on this song, the vocals, the production and the whole team is perfect. I couldn’t be happier to release this track as a sort of a comeback single.” – Kleerup
“The song is about 2 intense weeks I had in Barcelona years ago, experiencing a lot of things for the first time. 2 weeks that in many ways made me grow up I guess, maybe a little bit too fast. I wanted to try to capture those moments and memories in this song both lyrically but also in the soundscape.To tell this story sonically I wanted the soundscape to have some kind of cinematic and organic vibe to it and dynamically just letting it grow. In short ’Barcelona’ Is about love and loss, and realizing that nothing is forever. I think a lot of people can relate to this and hopefully it will bring back some good memories”.
