For fans of underground pop, January 15th is a day to look forward to. Then Molly Nilsson will share her long awaited tenth studio album Extremely via via Dark Skies Association / Night School. The project was announced in October with “Absolute Power”, a gorgeous and soaring rock song ripped from a montage of an 80s boxing film from a more beautiful universe. Today Nilsson shares her latest single “Pompeii”.
The new song doesn’t have the same outrageous, beefy sound as “Absolute Power”, but it’s just as cathartic. Four-on-the-floor and glittering rave synths make Nilsson’s unabashed declaration of love – with all its flaws – a triumph of dance-floor-oriented sincerity. In the song’s music video, she’s all alone (apart from a brief cameo by a cute fox) while dancing in an empty parking lot.
