Today, Molly Moore has released her new EP Escapism alongside brand-new single “Vacation.” The tuneis a slow-burning pop jam about falling in love with someone who is already with somebody else and having to come to terms with the one-sided infatuation, despite getting wrapped up in the feeling. The EP also featured previously released tracks “Shy,” “Do They?” and “Marco Polo.”
“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 heartbroken. 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.”
To celebrate the release of Escapism and her 2020 debut album Voice on the Internet, Molly will also be playing a special EP release show at Los Angeles’ Kiss Kiss Bang Bang on February 16 at 8:00pm. Curating the lineup herself, the event will also feature performances from Maty Noyes and COM3T.
