Austin, Texas’ Molly Burch has announced she’s signed with Captured Tracks. Today she’s revealed her video for debut single “Downhearted” via FADER who’ve described Molly’s voice as a “time capsule” and “retro country and soul in the best way”.
After a relocation from Asheville to Austin, Molly found herself reflecting back on past lives and past relationships. Drawing inspiration from Dusty Springfield, Patsy Cline, The Shirelles, and The Everly Brothers, she recorded a mature set of tracks full of vintage atmosphere and dreamy melancholy.
“Downhearted” is a melodic, soulful introduction which dives into the depths of love and lovesickness, giving voice to the desires that separate the two. Burch explains “she wanted ‘Downhearted’ to have that mix of feelings. Heartache, but also the freedom and lightness that comes with being alone, and realizing that you’re enough.”
For the video, she joined director and friend Jordan Moser to make something fun, simple and dreamy– sort of Françoise Hardy does East Austin.
