Boho chic chick Molly Smitten-Downes, the UK’s Eurovision 2014 contestant, has unveiled the music video for her entry ‘Children of the Universe’.

Molly puts her unique style on show, blending eastern elements and 60s-inspired looks. Boho-Morroccan is gonna be ruul, ruul big y’all. She also tosses gold powder about like a badass and sports some serious bling. Add an Instagram-esque filter and this video is simply bangin’.

The video is further proof of her quirkiness and originality, which we previously saw at the London Eurovision party, and of her artistry and intensity, which we saw during her live performance at the BBC Launch Show.

She might not be closing in on the favourite spot as fast as Sanna Nielsen but she’s not giving in y’all, and this video screams power.

What’s the connection here? This video is very random. Has nothing to do with the lyrics. It’s like Molly said, “oh I love the Boho/gypsy/hippie/ look and let’s mix in some witchcrafty glittery powder and some cheap plants, and oh, Aram mp3 is using so many drums in his music video so it’s got to be popular this year, since it was also popular last year. And let’s not put any money into this and let’s use whatever randomly comes in hand. And make sure the hideous plants show in the background too. Wardrobe-screw it, I’ll wear whatever my mommy… Read more »

Who cares about the video? What matters is the performance. We’ve seen that with Euphoria & Only Teardrops – you don’t need a good video to win the contest. Loreen & Emmelie didn’t even film a music video until they won the contest.

Either that, or they’ve basically saying “28th April? Ah, screw it! We might as well release it now.”

Thanks Anthony – You are right I have since seen the video of Molly performing COTU live at Madame Jojo’s in Soho, London last night where she says it’s available to buy now!! Perhaps it’s just the EP (CD) which is only available on 28th? Who knows, they have obviously changed their minds!!

Here’s the video anyway :- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qXaaCqwr7wA

Apparently, it’s already out on iTunes right now, even though it was scheduled for the 28th April as you’ve mentioned.

Please have another/an alternative music video for this song. It looks like some scenes are repeating 🙁 Otherwise, I might just accept it as time goes by like what I observed in Paula Seling & Ovi’s “Playing With Fire” music video.

It is nice, there’s no doubt about it, I just think there is a disconection between the lyrics and the visuals, the video has nothing to do with the song’s message or maybe there’s something I’m missing here?
But I like it nonetheless! The UK is really making a solid effort to win this year!

From Ireland I’d give it the twelve points… Best UK entry in years, probably since 1998 I’d reckon, let’s do the neighbourly thing this year UK like the others and trade 12’s lol 🙂
I reckon she will finish definitely in the top five though in fairness. Go Molly 😉

Not what I expected at all. Bohemian meets hippie to make Boho-chic. Molly’s certainly individual and original and does it her way, a breath of fresh air. The video is inexpensive yet effective. Molly will be releasing her song on Monday 28th April, it will be interesting to see how well it does across Europe, that will tell us whether she is genuinely one of the favourites to win. The UK are certainly in the mix this year for sure, potential Top 5 and winner for me. I have not said that for at least 16 years!!!!!! Certainly one of… Read more »

I suspect the staging on the night will be very hippy-esque, like the music video. Also “Children of the universe” is supposed to refer to everyone, not just “children” which is being used figuratively in this song.

Rematch the video the children are playing the drums when they put the drums sticks to their chests. Molly’s meant to be suspended in motion when she’s suspended it the air because everything else but her is dead.

@adriana_gabriela “Children” doesn’t have to refer to young children, especially when used figuratively. Molly and her boho drummers are the children of the universe!

This is how you do a good, cheap video. It’s using one set, elaborately decorated, heaps of atmosphere. The only bit that doesn’t quite work for me is Molly standing in the pot plant, but maybe I’ll forgive it because of the general boho hippy vibe.
