Molly Warburton has released her new single titled ‘Midnight Hour’. Upbeat and poppy with a slight tinge of snark to reflect Molly’s vocal style, ‘Midnight Hour’ is an energetic insight into finding one’s faults and needed changes to better one’s self.
Feeling the mood with the music, Molly injects a sense of realism mixed with enlightenment by surrounding the message with a massive hook and an accessibility that most songs lack.
About Molly Warburton
Hailing from the small city of Lancashire, Molly Warburton is armed with unparalleled strength and individuality. Her tough exterior blends with her soft, vulnerable core – a combination that shines brightly across her growing repertoire. Through intoxicating indie-pop melodies and a powerhouse of vocal energy, Warburton proves that at her core, she is a truly passionate storyteller, bringing her chronicles to life with the vibrancy of her sound.
Picking up the guitar at just ten years old, the musician grew up embarking on several competitions and later studied music. As her love for the industry grew exponentially, she started gigging in her teens and has been ever since. Bringing her unique musicality to the ears of budding listeners everywhere, she lights up the room with her truly contagious indie pop anthems and positive outlook on life.
Her latest single “Midnight Hour” narrates a moment of realization after identifying the things in your life that are holding you back. Warburton shares, “Midnight Hour was written about two friends of mine. The song is about being in a dead end relationship with someone but having a moment of madness with someone else in your friendship group – a so-called “stranger” in the song. When you can’t stop thinking about what you could have and fantasising about how young and free it would make you feel but in reality it isn’t something that would work or something anyone could ever know about.”
Inspired by the likes of Haim, Jade Bird and Maisie Peters, “Midnight Hour” showcases twinkling synths, euphoric harmonies and emotion-fueled vocals, as the upbeat dance-worthy anthem shines bright with a new-found confidence and self-worth. The lyrics, “Been stuck in the midnight hour, now I’m dancing till the sun” highlights the feeling of being trapped but eventually being set free and finally being able to really express your true feelings.
The accompanying music video is filmed in a “typical” date setting and represents the different feelings and sides to people’s relationships and how they might try and cover things up. The fun and playful video shows the singer dressed in different outfits and colors, reflecting the battle of mixed emotions when going through a difficult time.
With over one million streams on Spotify alone, the artist has seen her music land on renowned playlists such as New Music Friday, New Pop UK and Chilled Pop Hits, to name a few. Garnering humbling support from the likes of Earmilk, Music Crowns and NOTION, she has performed at countless festivals and venues around the UK and Ireland, including London’s Shepherd Bush Empire, Manchester Ritz, and O2 venues across Leeds, Liverpool, Bristol and Birmingham. Appearing on the festival stages of Highest Point, Kendal Calling and Forgotten Fields, she supported Tom Meighan on his 2022 tour, and even appeared as BBC Introducing Lancashire’s Record of the Week! Needless to say, Molly Warburton is set to soar in success.
