As if performing on the giant stage in Copenhagen wasn’t enough, Molly Smitten-Downes has just performed on the BBC Introducing stage at the legendary Glastonbury festival.
The highlight of Molly’s set on Friday was her new song “OCD”, which Molly had also performed at the London Eurovision Party in April to general approval. It’s a groovy tune, with much saucier lyrics than “Children of the Universe”. Molly uses obsessive compulsive disorder as a metaphor for romantic turmoil. And who can resist a song with the hook “You’ve gotta touch it, touch it, touch it”?
But there was even more excitement on the farm. The BBC’s Glasto blog reports that due to stormy weather, the stage suffered a power outage some point during Molly’s set. Always the pro, Molly took her band down into the middle of the crowd and happily played an acoustic set.
So what do y’all think of Molly’s saucy new sound? Are you obsessed with “OCD”? Would the UK have done better in Copenhagen if the BBC had gone with it instead of “Children of the Universe”?
