Molly Smitten-Downes is not giving in and she’s shining like a diamond with fire in her bones. And with the unveiling of the studio version of “Children of the Universe”, she is shining even brighter than before.
Molly’s voice has a delightful breathiness to it, and the remastered track preserves the phone-sex-operator vibe. In the opening bars it’s like she is whispering into our ears. This version also brings into sharper focus the strong backing vocals and chanting. They help give the song a tribal quality, which might explain its near universal appeal. Don’t you feel your inner Cave Man knocking when this song gets going?
The studio version will be released on April 28. The official artwork shows Molly looking very Atilla the Hun, with a headpiece that screams warrior goddess. But her skin is so soft and fare we’re gonna say it’s more Atilla ‘da Honey.
Anyway, are you going to drop a few coins to get Molly’s single? What do you think of the studio version?
