Returning with her second single and once again showcasing her uplifting, heartfelt songwriting, London Singer-Songwriter Molly Roberts shines on ‘Hearts’. Not only a display of her effortlessly moving piano and string arrangements, ‘Hearts’ is also a stunning example of Molly’s abilities as vocals with soaring high notes and tight, beautiful harmonies.
