I’m not sure what I was doing at 19; probably covering the Arctic Monkeys in a garage. In any case, it definitely wasn’t what namesake Mollie has achieved with the seamless production and encapsulating performance of this latest single. Mollie Coddled, or Mollie Taylor by birth, records her music from her bedroom, consummating her place securely in the bedroom-pop genre, alongside the likes of Clairo and Banes World. The soulful vocals are mature and considered as she sings the delicate lyrical content of emotional abuse that she so valiantly hopes “someone may be able to find salvation in”.
“This track is a summer evening in sonic form; pink skies and wispy clouds in the shape of reverb-soaked guitars and silky vocal harmonies.“
Mollie rightly mentioned the increase in abusive relationships during lockdown whilst describing her track and I commend the bravery in writing such personal lyrics, bringing such an important subject to attention. This track is a summer evening in sonic form; pink skies and wispy clouds in the shape of reverb-soaked guitars and silky vocal harmonies.
