Molly O'Leary Shares New Single "Echo" In Anticipation of New LP Releasing Later This Month

Building on the anticipation of the release of their new LP, Marigold, out everywhere February 23, Molly O'Leary shares new single "Echo". Molly goes on to share that she wrote the song for her two brothers, Tommy and Teddy,

“I wrote this song for my big brothers.” shares O’leary. “I wanted them to know that, even as we get older, I will always need them. My brother Tommy is a drummer, and my brother Teddy is a cardiologist (aka a heart doctor), hence the references to the drum and the heart in the bridge. I think it’s interesting that both of their jobs have to do with pulses, with beats. There are other references in the song to this theme but I'll leave them unsaid for listeners to find. Also, Megan Coleman is on drums for this song and the whole record, and she completely nailed it. I especially wanted this song to be drum focused, and I love how it came out.”

Marigold was recorded in Nashville with producer (and Grammy nominated songwriter in his own right) Will Hoge. On the new album, the indie musician and songwriter from New Bedford, Massachusetts charts the highs and lows of their own formidable (and ongoing) journey towards healing, self-acceptance, and self-actualization. Molly O'Leary has long used their songwriting as a form of activism to raise awareness about mental health and social justice. The art serving as a companion to their professional work as a practicing therapist (O’Leary now works part time in private practice, having previously been on staff as an elementary school counselor). Yet Marigold represents an artistic breakthrough mirroring O’Leary’s own progress in their journey towards healing, giving rise to their most lyrically personal and musically explorative work to date.

“This album feels like an explosion of what I always dreamed my music would be,” shares O’Leary. “And thematically, I think this album is much more mature than my first.”

Echo” follows earlier singles “Marigold” and “Ticking Of A Clock” which have won notice from Q Magazine, The Alternative, Northern Transmissions, Rainbow Rodeo, and New Noise, among many others.
