Welcome to BuzzMusic, Molly Annelle, and congratulations on the release of "Dior." With such a wealthy song name, what inspired you to tap into this rich concept throughout the record?
Thank you so much. I'm so excited to release this baby to the world finally! When this song was conceptualized, we were just having fun with it. Louise, Parker, and I wanted to paint a vivid picture of extravagance and femininity. I always gravitated towards Dior of all the luxury brands in the world because it exudes the most feminine, fancy energy to me! The writing session for this song was so fun and exciting, and I believe that energy translates through the song.
With this song being your second single release with 604 Records, what does it say about you as an artist and individual?
This song is the perfect transition out of Elevator Music (my last album) and into my following metamorphosis as an artist. Because I worked on Elevator Music from the age of 15, and I'm 18 now, I feel like I've grown up a lot and settled into my sound and aesthetic. Dior is the song that showcases me in the light in which I truly feel like my own person.
How has working with 604 Records allowed you to open yourself in a more artistic way? How does the team help to enhance your visions?
Being part of such an amazing label is a true blessing. Working with such talented, humble, driven, and kind individuals have made me want to improve my skills and encouraged me to expand on every idea. Especially when working with Louise Burns, I feel my visions being enhanced by her expertise, and she understands exactly how my brain works!
What is your mission statement as an artist? How do you allow that to tie into everything you do?
My mission as an artist is to make people feel good. You know those songs that make you feel warm all over, and you listen to it on repeat? Or you can't wait to wake up in the morning to listen to it again? I want to make music that moves people. I want to make people feel something. Music is so powerful because it can change your mood, and I want to change people's moods for the better.
