Bold lyrics and a steady swagger lead the way in Molly Moore’s latest release, ‘I Love You But I Don’t Like You.’ In the aftermath of a breakup, we’re left to grapple with unprecedented feelings, bringing us annoyances like like grief, guilt, and anger. Moore’s track is a brave two minute account of where she’s at with it, and well, the title speaks for itself.
With a confident strut, ‘I Love You But I Don’t Like You’ showcases a dark, flirtatious side to Moore. As if she discovered a newfound power in the loss, it’s a colorful, biting song that will have you singing the lyrics long after the two minute ride is over. The chorus is catchy pop with a liberating hunch, the anthemic kind Moore is known for.
“Sadness is like a costume you can’t take off.” Moore explains. “Being in a long term relationship & grieving is one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to navigate, especially when anger & confusing emotions are displaced onto the other person.”
Transplant by way of the Bronx, Moore is proving herself to be a force for all females in the pop world. Keep up with the energy via Molly Moore’s Instagram and catch her at the Globe Theater July 13th.
