For anxiety addicts

If you struggle with anxiety addiction, then you’re not alone. Molly Burch’s “Candy” is the trouper anthem for all of us who constantly wrestle with our inner voice on a daily basis. It’s a slo-mo, sweet pop jam where Molly’s croons puts you into this state of calmness. Enjoy below:

“I wrote ‘Candy’ after a long conversation with my dad on the phone, where I had been just walking around getting out a lot of my self doubt and creative anxieties. It may sound like I’m talking to a past love, but it’s really meant for that voice in my head that tells me a negative narrative. Anxiety can be so addictive (like candy) — the cycle of it, the relief after you’ve spent time worrying about something that turns out fine. I felt like writing about all of this because it’s a significant part of my waking life, but all wrapped up in a sweet pop song.” explained Molly Burch.

“Candy” is from Molly’s upcoming album First Flower, out on October 5th. She’s on tour this fall/winter, so go say hi:
