The latest release from solo artist Molly Baker is a gem of pop songwriting. We hear the theme of "Runaway” in the very essence of the melody - like a friend gently tugging your hand as you dash over a windswept field in the dwindling light of a late summer's day. Baker's youthful, sweetheart vocals are naturally warm and genuinely comforting, resting lightly atop an arrangement of bright, energetic indie pop.
This track is impressive on every level. The melody alone rivals Olivia Rodrigo’s “good 4 u,” but it uses a totally different, and specially singular, approach. Not jaded and edgy, but lighthearted and joyous. This is a fresh take on pop songwriting that we predict will soon replace the current angst-driven radio trends. Molly Baker easily rises as a new middle America song-star.
