Molly Hammar, the Swedish pop sensation hailing from Stockholm, releases ‘No Place Like Me‘, featuring Big Narstie, the lead single from her next EP which is due for release Fall 2019. The hypnotic lead single pairs Molly’s sensual vocal with percussive beats, features a rap from celebrated London MC and TV personality Big Narstie and reflects Molly’s current, carefree existence.
Speaking about the track Molly said, “’No Place Like Me’ marks the place I’m at in my life right now, being able to truly be free and focus on what makes me feel good. I’m 23, single and loving life. Having Big Narstie join me on this single is a dream come true, I was so happy when he agreed to guest, it couldn’t be a better fit.”
The 23 yr old Swedish artist feels strongly about promoting healthy body image, empowering women and fighting for equal rights. Her first EP, SEX that she released when she was a teenager put her on the map garnering attention for her bold songwriting and infectious alt pop that oozes with a lust for life and a rebellious attitude. The EP was an expression of herself, saying she wrote it because she “wanted to tell my own story, to discuss sex from my perspective and my own experience.”
She’s been focusing on music and writing these last few years, and now she’s back with her powerful tunes and self-aware anthems. “I’m 23, single and loving my life. I’m refusing to bend to anyone else – I’m me, I’m home, I’m doing what I like.”
This year Molly was invited to perform at the Swedish Grammys after an Aretha Franklin tribute she recorded with two friends went viral. The next few months will see the release of two further singles and a second EP that finds Molly baring her soul on the dynamic within relationships, her own identity and lost nights out in London. Big Narstie just won a RTS Award for “Entertainment Performance” with The Big Narstie Show (Expectation / Dice Productions for Channel 4).
“When I first heard Molly I thought ‘rah, this is sick!’ She’s got a wicked voice, and No Place Like Me is a banger so it was a no brainer to jump on board. Big up Cosmos and the Swedish BDL family. We gonna ride this wave from the UK to Scandinavia and across the world.” – Big Narstie
“Hammar’s voice is as smooth as silk as she sings about relatable themes of independence and that empowerment” – Colors
