Molly Nilsson

Molly Nilsson is releasing a new album, Extreme, tomorrow. She’s shared “Absolute Power” and “Pompeii” from it already — the latter was a pop banger that landed on our best songs of the week list — and today she has one more single for us, “Sweet Smell Of Success,” which also rocks but in a completely different way. It’s built around a looping guitar riff, and Nilsson adopts a strained sort of delivery that reminds me a bit of EMA. “Of all my little lies, this is my favourite life/ At home when we’re retired we’ll finally get to cry,” she says at one point. Check it out below.

Last month, Molly Nilsson announced a new album, Extreme, her 10th overall and her first since 2018’s Twenty Twenty. She shared lead single “Absolute Power” at the time, and today she’s back with another new track, “Pompeii.” It’s the album’s closing track and it builds to a massive explosion, much like the fated city that gives the song its title. “The deepest desire I can’t explain/ If it wasn’t for love then it’s all in vain/ Did they feel this way that night in Pompeii?” Nilsson sings in the chorus. Check it out below.

Swedish DIY synthpop auteur Molly Nilsson has announced the new album Extreme, her 10th studio album and her first since 1018’s Twenty Twenty. With its heavy guitars and double kick beats, lead single “Absolute Power” brings new shadings and textures to Nilsson’s familiar dreamscape sound. “It’s me vs. the black hole at the center of the galaxy,” she sings. “Who we are vs. who we’d like to be/ Get ready for the fight of the century.” Watch and listen below.
