Molly Anna Band
Video World Premiere
Louder Than War are delighted to bring you the world premiere of the Molly Anna Bands brilliant new single “Horror Show.” Influenced by ‘90s hard rock bands (think Incubus in their quieter moments) and the raw vocal power of Alanis Morissette and Hayley Williams, Molly Anna’s dark fiction weaves intricate tales of love, self-destruction and extraordinary escape plans: from the scars left by lovers gone wrong to a burnt down house and a flawed alibi.
The video is beautifully shot, its dark palette providing the perfect backdrop for Molly Anna’s anguished and haunting vocal performance. Make no mistake this is a powerful piece of work, a perfect showcase for a song that is sure to prove a showstopper during the bands live performances.
“Horrorshow” is Molly Anna’s follow up to their single “Villain,” which they released in October 2015 to raise funds and awareness for Samaritans. The single proved popular – with Sloucher Zine describing it as ‘Gorgeous’ and BBC Introducing saying it was ‘Brilliant.’
With a refined, mature and honest sound, the pair are set for even bigger and better things in 2016 – Molly Anna has already headlined shows in Leeds, performed at Tramlines festival and taken part in an Arts Council funded concert recognising the work of female composers.
Molly Anna and Mike Hukins self-produced the ‘Ghosts’ EP. It was mastered by Mynetaur productions and features guest performances by some of Leeds College of Music’s finest musicians on piano and drums.
Nostalgic yet modern, Molly Anna draws influence from 90s acts such as Incubus and Tracy Bonham, to Daughter and Paramore of present day. Feminine grunge vocals are at once volatile and vulnerable, captivating yet introverted.
Honest lyrics combined with dark fiction weave messy tales of love, self-destruction, healing and extraordinary escape plans: from the scars left by lovers gone wrong, to a burnt down house and a flawed alibi…
Molly Anna evokes the glitter in the shadows and embraces the blemishes of everyday struggles.
