'Fool Me With Flattery'

Molly Burman was brought up around music.

At every family event, every party, the soundtrack would resonate with her, providing an education in itself.

Both parents were gigging musicians, and she always wanted to follow in their footsteps, to use performance as a means of self-expression.

Lockdown brought the time and space to bring these ideas into focus, and she's working to unveil a series of one off singles.

Her debut single proper 'Fool Me With Flattery' is out now, a blissfully melodic piece of indie pop with some whip-smart lyricism.

There's a tongue in cheek element to her sound that is fantastically endearing, matched by the subtle lo-fi elements of her bedroom pop confection.

She comments: "I wrote the song after a long day of feeling overlooked and ignored by some of the guys in my life. I was fed up, angry and used the stereotype of a mansplaining misogynist to let it all out. This song is for anyone who feels belittled and like they’re being made to shrink themselves; be as big as you possibly can, and don’t let anyone fool you with flattery."

The video is a hilarious showcase for Molly's offbeat sense of humour - tune in now.
