Molly Moore has released her new EP Escapism alongside brand-new single “Vacation.”
“Escapism is an ode to the journey of falling in love,” says Molly on the EP. “It’s about avoidance, fantasy, acceptance, and being reminded that you have the capacity to feel for another person, even after being heart broken. It’s about intimacy that goes beyond physical touch. I’ve been an escapist for most of my life, whether I’m escaping through music, love, substances, or simply experiences. I think escapism can be wildly therapeutic and also extremely destructive depending upon the circumstances. This body of work is an insight into my mind as I navigate every side of it.”
New York-born and Los Angeles-based emerging songstress Molly Moore has released “Shy,” the third and latest single from her forthcoming EP Escapism, out February 11th.
“This song was written in a stream of consciousness,” shares Molly. “It was one of those times when I listened to the words I was naturally saying while writing the melodies and they fit exactly how I was feeling without really having to change too much. I was starting to feel a spark and wanted to know if the other person felt it too. It felt like they were holding back what they were feeling, and I wanted to know if I was just in it alone or if what I was feeling was real. In general, I think people should be encouraged to communicate more freely and honestly, and so often we hide our truth in an attempt to make someone else’s experience better, but we end up making the entire situation more complicated.”
Brimming with emotional vulnerability, the hazy dream-pop track, which was co-produced by artist and friend NoMBe and Mike Gonek (Torro Torro, Chris Brown, Grandtheft), provides a look into the heart of Escapism.
