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.”
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.
Love the video. Molly seems to be a great performer on screen as well as in live performance. Im loving Molly!
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!
DAMN IT ! was expecting a powerful video connected with song : ( She is my favourite ,I hope her show will be powerful, at least : /
Video is beautiful but not for this song .
The stupidest video ever!!!
What’s the connection between the lyrics and the video?
OMG- unfortunately that is soooo bad!!!
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 😉
Told ya, this is Francis Rufelle-1994 all over again.
there is something witchy in this video, all that powder throwing… strange
Molly…..smile. You have a lovely one. Use it more often.
Molly for the win!
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.
Yes ,maybe your right i dont get the message ,but i have to admit she sings great and i wish her the best of luck
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.
OMG SO MUCH BEAUTY <3 and @adriana_gabriela, you dont get the massege, that's for sure
This video is a big misunderstanding.It isn`t compatible with the song.You missed Molly…
Great song ,but the video …?Its about children of the univers right?where are the children on this clip?
Donatan & Cleo released a new song and a new video as well
