Swedish star Molly Hammar releases “Words”.

by Christopher Smith

Molly Hammar, the Swedish chart-topping R’n’B sensation hailing from Stockholm, releases “Words”, the second single from her forthcoming EP and follow up track to hit single “No Place Like Me” featuring Big Narstie.

The addictive, dancefloor-friendly “Words” was written with Molly’s childhood friend Benjamin Ingrosso and produced by Hampus Lindvall (Icona Pop/Zara Larsson). The infectious upbeat pop song simply encourages us to talk openly to each other.

Speaking about the track Molly said “’Words’ is a song that I’ve been wanting to release ever since that hot summer’s day in the studio. It’s about a very common subject…how we seldomly dare to open up and be honest with each other, we just don’t talk about what really matters. I hope this song will make people open their hearts and open up to each other too”.

A spirit of adventure, independence and self-discovery shines through Molly’s new music as her captivating vocal directly expresses her opinions and emotions. Her previous single “No Place Like Me” featuring UK grime legend Big Narstie continues to climb the UK Spotify viral chart, garnered widespread media support across the UK from the likes of BBC 1Xtra, Channel 4, The Line of Best Fit and Complex to name but a few.

Molly Hammar is set to continue winning over UK audiences throughout 2019 with her stunning voice and big personality. The artist spends her time traveling between London, Stockholm and LA, writing new songs both for herself and other artists. She’s co-written and guested on songs with Sick Individuals and SONDR among others.

This year Molly was invited to perform at the Swedish Grammys after an Aretha Franklin tribute she recorded with two friends went viral. The next few months will see the release of another single and a second EP that finds Molly baring her soul on the dynamic within relationships, her own identity and lost nights out in London.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
