Molly Nilsson has released Pompeii, the second single to be taken from her forthcoming album Extreme due in January. Accompanied by a video filmed at the Olympiastadion in Berlin, Pompeii is an unabashed brave declaration of love.
Molly Nilsson is a true independent artist. She writes and performs by herself, runs her own record label that releases her albums in conjunction with Glasgow's Night School and has a consistent unwavering artistic vision that encompasses everything from her black and white artwork to her particular take on synth pop.
The Roman city of Pompeii, buried as it stood by a volcano, is used a metaphor for wanting love to remain exactly how it is - "How are you gonna spend your lonely night? How are you gonna spend your only life? When I’m in your embrace. I can hardly describe how much I love that place. I wish we could stay, forever this way. Just like Pompeii" set to Molly's traditional upbeat electronica and striking unique voice.
