North London singer songwriter Molly Burman has just released her debut single, ‘Fool Me With Flattery’, out now on Prolifica Inc. Growing up in a musical household, her mother singing with Shane Macgowan of The Pogues and her father performing in bands alongside members of Bow Wow Wow and Sex Pistols.
She says of the single “I wrote the song after a long day of feeling overlooked and ignored by some of the guys in my life. I was fed up, angry and used the stereotype of a mansplaining misogynist to let it all out. This song is for anyone who feels belittled and like they’re being made to shrink themselves; be as big as you possibly can, and don’t let anyone fool you with flattery!”
She mixes up these themes of frustration and being overlooked, and wraps them in some gloriously melodic indie pop / bedroom pop, as she prods and pulls at your resistance with her wry sardonic look at the world.
