Molly Nilsson «You always hurt the one you love»

2016-08-31

There is never just one layer to Nilsson’s lyrics, and they are always spiked with her deadpan, sardonic wit. “I’m always close to having a sense of humour, even in really bad times,” she says. “I think it’s a part of who I am or how I see the world, but also, if I was writing a song that was just sad, I couldn’t even listen to it myself, I think. I try, in the lyrics, to always put a twist in there. And after a while that twist just becomes a part of the song; I don’t even hear it. Sometimes I’ve written things and I was like, ‘Yeah, I’ll throw that in there. That’s really funny.’ And afterwards it’s not funny anymore, it’s just a part of the statement.”

The track «You always hurt the one you love» is taken from the album «History» from 2011. 

Nilsson produces her moodily shimmering indie synth pop by herself, runs her own label (Dark Skies Association), does all the album art herself, books her own tours, and performs live as a solo act, and on Friday Oct 28th she will perform for us at Ekko Festival.

Ekko presenterer klubb, konserter og andre satelittprosjekter hele året i hovedsak på Østre – hus for lydkunst og elektronisk musikk.
