Molly Burch just unveiled her new lead single, ‘Wild’ from her sophomore album, First Flower which is releasing Friday 5th of October via Captured Tracks / Remote Control.
‘Wild‘ is about the desire for self-acceptance. “I wanted to write a song that made me feel at peace with my imperfections and celebrate others without putting them on pedestals“ Burch explains. The Luca Venter directed music video can be viewed below
Burch came onto the music scene in 2017 with her debut album Please Be Mine. Her first album earned praise from critics for her smoky, effortless vocals and bleeding-heart lyrics.
“I was really blown away with how many people told me that the music has helped them through their own break-up,” she says of Please Be Mine. “I was just so moved by that. I never expected it. I was aware that people were actually listening to my music and having a positive experience, so [with First Flower] I wanted to reveal my own struggles with fear and anxiety.”
Unlike Please Be Mine, which focused on the contentious depression of heartbreak, First Flower explores broken friendships, her relationship with her sister, and how Burch learned to fight her overwhelming anxiety.First Flower is a bright, beautiful album peppered with moments of triumph. Burch’s voice is as strong and dexterous as ever, demonstrating her incredible range and professionalism as a vocalist.
