Molly Payton Admits Being The Breakupee As Well In “Honey”

Melancholically guilty

London-based, New Zealand native Molly Payton is guilty as charged when it comes to breakup in her new single “Honey.” A bittersweet piece that oozes with melancholia, “Honey” is a mature acceptance of admitting that you’re just as equally as responsible for the disintegration of a relationship. It’s a track that seems to look back for the last time before finding closure from the past as Molly’s soft, raw vocals capture the nostalgia, longing, and heartbreak of it all: 

In her words, “‘Honey’ is about that moment in a relationship where things stop working as well as they used to. This song was me taking responsibility for my part in the decay of it all, acknowledging that I’d been distant and that I’d keep trying to make things work. I think there’s also an undercurrent of frustration with myself for letting my past interfere with my present. Like most songs I write it was mostly just me working through my own mind and emotions, but I guess the message of this song would be to make sure you’re not giving too much of yourself away. Take time to make sure you’re ok so that you can support the people you love.”

Molly is set to hit festival stages and join Oscar Lang on his tour soon:
