Molly Burch announces new album, First Flower, shares “Wild”: Stream

on July 25, 2018, 2:21pm

Texas-based songwriter Molly Burch has announced her sophomore album, First Flower. The follow-up to her 2017 Please Be Mine debut is due out October 5th via Captured Tracks.

Whereas her first album dealt with heartbreak, Burch addresses her own insecurities and anxieties on First Flower. The early seeds of the record began to blossom while she and her bandmate/boyfriend, Dailey Toliver, were holed up in their small town outside of Austin during the state’s terrible spat of hurricanes. Once the skies cleared, Burch entered Austin’ Cacophony Recorders with producer Erik Wofford.

The end result “is a bright, beautiful album peppered with moments of triumph,” according to a press release. Often, those conquests are understated and soft, as with lead single “Wild”. A dreamy, sturdy track wrapped in the lushness of modern indie folk, the song takes an even-keeled look at self-acceptance. “I wanted to write a song that made me feel at peace with my imperfections and celebrate others without putting them on pedestals” Burch explained.

The track’s video, which finds Burch playing three different characters — one confident, another insecure, and a wise one to balance the two — competing in a beauty pageant. Check out the Luca Venter-directed clip below.

First Flower is available for pre-order now. The album art and tracklist are viewable below.
