LA-based artist Molly Moore gives us the bittersweet taste of reality without social media bullshit in her new upbeat single “IRL” where she pays homage to 90s pop spirit. It’s playful, chic, and retro, but also leaves behind the superficial bubble of the Internet and addresses hefty topics. Inspired by Molly’s own personal struggles, “IRL” is an anthem that every adult can find comfort in:
On her new single Molly shared:
“This is the first song off my first full length album. The title IRL AKA ‘In Real Life’ has a big meaning to me right now as I’ve been embracing a lot of difficult truths in my own reality. It seems super easy to portray only the good things about your life to people, in person or on social media; But for me, doing that has been stifling and extremely unhealthy. After facing the death of my father at 25 and the end of a 6-year relationship shortly after, I was so vulnerable and broken that sharing my truth in every aspect has been the only way I’ve started to cope. Ultimately, I think everyone wants to be accepted as themselves and comfortable in their authentic form. I’ve given myself permission to embrace and share my scariest thoughts and experiences, even if initially it makes people uncomfortable or they can’t understand, because I think it’s incredibly important and our duty as human beings to have meaningful and progressive conversation.”
Molly has previously written for artists such as Jesse McCartney, Steve Aoki, EXO, and Lea Michele. She is currently working on her first full length album.
