Quoted as "one of the most poignant songwriters in the country" (Nialler9) and “nothing short of heart-stopping” (Ed Smith), Molly Sterling has certainly caused a stir during her short time in the Irish music industry. With notable appearances at Other Voices, Forbidden Fruit and Indiependence to name but a few, her debut headline show in Whelans on Friday the 22nd of March will be her biggest yet.
Her early releases ‘Plain Static’ and ‘Stripped Down’ - which both premiered on Nialler9 to rave reviews, with Hot Press Magazine naming them both ‘Track of the Day’, and The Last Mixed Tape naming them ‘Track of the Week’ - saw both singles giving a clear sense of who Sterling is, and her highly emotive, honest and sometimes distraught song-writing gave the first hints of what lies beneath for this young artist.
Her next single ‘Feeble’, produced by Ryan Vail, is set for release early 2019 and will be the artist’s biggest release to date, including the backing of her full band that features drums, cello and electric guitar.
Molly Sterling has been creating music for as long as she can remember. A wordsmith and songwriter by nature, her music is moulded by dark and affective lyrics, wrapped up in grounding piano riffs, and a vocal that is overflowing with exposed emotion - delivering every note and syllable with precise detail, giving the listener the feeling that it has been honed from somewhere buried and unfathomable.
Hot Press Magazine - "Sterling feels every note she sings. Her impressive vocal ability sends shivers down the spines of the crowd, creating an atmosphere that feels so personal and yet so unified."
Nialler9 - "Sterling’s songcraft is superb, championing a sound that is brooding and apocalyptic."
