New Bedford, MA's Molly O'Leary recorded their upcoming album in Nashville with Will Hoge, and has the title track off the album out now. "Marigold" is an alt-singer/songwriter track that dances with the mainstream but never quite fully commits. It's a song that is quiet but still intense. O'Leary adds some of the more interesting instrumentation into the song, giving it a unique sound and feel. There is some twang to the song, showing that it was recorded in Nashville, but it's definitely not a country track. Nothing in "Marigold" breaks any musical rules, and the instruments used are standard for the genre, but O'Leary just crafts the song together in a way that makes it sound completely original. They're an artist we'll be keeping a close eye on in the near future.
Molly O'Leary says of their new single:
