Molly Hammar Releases Captivating New Single, ‘Shortcuts (I Can’t Wait)’

Swedish chart-topping R&B sensation, MOLLY HAMMAR is back again with her new single, ‘Shortcuts (I Can’t Wait), released via Cosmos Music.

Molly’s latest offering opens with the soft trickle of piano keys and laid-back R&B melodies, while Stockholm-born songstress’ smoky vocal captivates with unwavering honesty about the ongoing struggle of chasing her dreams. Molly’s powerhouse vocal gradually builds to give an air of someone who has truly found herself.

“I’m so tired of not being a superstar” Molly quips with a twinkle in her eye. “I said that to my songwriters, and that’s how ‘Shortcuts’ was born. “Shortcuts” is about all the shortcuts you can take towards fulfilling your dreams and the struggle I think everyone faces when you have big dreams and want to achieve them. All the pressure that comes with it, the frustration, the longing. I’ve learned that taking the long road always pays off in the end, if you want something that’s gonna last. Both career wise and in life. It’s a frustration anthem in the most beautiful way.”

Co-written with Professor P (Avicii, Daniel Adams-Ray) and produced by PARO (Dua Lipa, Alicia Keys, Paloma Faith), ‘Shortcuts (I Can’t)’ follows huge singles ‘No Place Like Me’ featuring Big Narstie, ‘WORDS’ and her summer hit ‘Show Me’ with Kim Cesarion, which have collectively garnered widespread media support across the UK and globally from the likes of BBC Radio 2, BBC 1Xtra, Channel 4, The Line of Best Fit, Complex, NYLON and Idolator.

‘Shortcuts (I Can’t Wait)’ will form part of Molly’s second EP, slated for release next year.

Steven Christopher Delivers His New Video For ‘In My Head’

STEVEN CHRISTOPHER‘s music video for his single ‘In My Head’ feature his friends and R&B/pop singer himself storm Area 51, causing a little chaos along the way…

Taking off on a road trip in search of aliens, the group eventually find exactly what they’re looking for. The video’s concept of alien abduction plays on the song’s lyrics about being a loner and feelings of not fitting in.

Speaking of the latest visual, Steven says: “When writing the treatment, I tried to think of another way to express a sometimes dark but very real desire to get away besides the obvious. Being a Sci-Fi nerd, the idea of being taken to an entirely new galaxy seemed a lot more interesting.”

The video is Steven’s first stab at directing along with frequent collaborator Joey Lopez…check it out below…

Zinnia Delivers Stunning Single ‘Requiem’ For Her Father

Frontwoman Rachael Cardiello – from five-piece pop art rock group ZINNIA –  spent most of her twenties processing her dad’s death, an experience which emotionally toughen her up.

She explains: “In some ways, I feel like I processed it so fully that I grew a thick callus around the part of the loss that was very raw and fragile. At times I’ve resented the tough skin which was necessary to get through that hard time.”

To mark the ten year anniversary of his death, the Toronto-based singer/songwriter wrote ‘Requiem’ on the plane ride home to Montana. Described as a significant milestone, the single also serves as the singer’s curiosity to see how her grief would change.

‘Requiem’ is taken from the group’s debut full-length, ‘Sensations in Two Dot’, set for release on 22nd November. The nine-track project focuses on moments of doubt and probes into the complex, unsettling similarities found in the human experience.

EP Review: Probably Crying – Girl Wilde

When I first hit the play button on GIRL WILDE‘s latest EP, ‘Probably Crying’, I wasn’t only instantly hit by the explosive combo of electro pop and 90’s inspired grunge rock, but her alluring vocals that could rival the likes of Gwen Stefani.

Don’t get caught up in the fluffy frills with a slight rebellious streak, if you’re planning to listen to this EP. Beyond the fun-packed arrangements, the LA artist bravely taps into her vulnerability and covers personal and deep-rooted subjects such as depression (in ‘I Don’t Wanna Die,’ ‘Probably Crying’), female sexual desire (‘WeT’), and anger management (‘BATSHiT’).

Although the above subjects are often swept under the carpet, the message in this EP is clear and simple: it’s OK to experience those feelings, so embrace them!

‘Probably Crying’ is one pretty neat package – why not check it out below…
