Molly Burch shares New single ‘Tattoo’, the third offering from her upcoming album ‘Daydreamer’ out 29th Sepetember via Captured Tracks. The song is dedicated to her late best friend, Lena, and is an ethereal ballad featuring sweeping harp and backup vocals from Hannah Kim (Luna Li). Accompanying the song is a video created by Burch and Lena’s sister.
Molly shares about the process of writing the song, “I wrote this song for my best friend Lena who passed away when we were 19. She was truly the most special person I’ve ever known. It’s hard to describe her. She was the most fearless, daring person who did anything for a laugh. For example, on our senior year scavenger hunt she got a teacher’s name tattoo’d on her ass. That isn’t the tattoo I’m referring to on this song, though. Before she passed she got a symbol on her breast bone that meant ‘no fear.’ After she passed I decided to get the same tattoo in the same place so I would always have her close to my heart and remember to not be afraid. I wrote this song for her because Daydreamer is about my relationship to music and she was the first person I played music with. I hope it does her justice.”
Having recently relocated to her hometown of Los Angeles, the beginnings of her latest album came together after Burch found her old diaries from age 13 and younger. Renowned for her captivating vocals and vivid depictions of love and loss, Molly takes on a new form in Daydreamer, focusing on the relationship she has with herself as well as the personal highs and lows that inform her self-identity.
