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”?

OCD sounds great! I can’t wait for Molly’s album!
F&*# the stormy weather. Molly is unstoppable in thar performance!
OCD sound interesting! can’t wait for her new album. Molly has a lot of potential to do well in charts and radio. Did she perform her Eurovision entry?
Love it… especially down and dirty in the mud. A pro!
Can’t wait for a music video!!!!!!!!
I would love to see Molly back at Eurovision (with some better diction)! She can definitely win it for us 😀
I would not be surprised if the UK sent Molly back to Eurovision because she might actually win for the UK.
I didn’t know Molly was in Glastonbury!!!
