Following the release of her critically acclaimed sophomore album, First Flower, last October, Texan chanteuse Molly Burch will return with the release of a new 7” entitled Ballads on August 2nd (Captured Tracks). Today she shares the A-Side, “Only One.” Burch explains, “‘Only One’ was recorded at the same time as First Flower, but it didn’t quite make sense on the album. Both this and the B-side ‘Your Party’ fit together in a nice way, I think. I decided to call the 7” Ballads as an homage to the powerful female vocalists I idolized growing up. Seems sort of classic. Both songs really embody what I love to do – sing with emotion, and drama, and romance, taking as much time as I need.”

In support of Ballads, Molly will embark on a North American Tour with dates beginning July 27 in Bengough, SK and concluding in her hometown of Austin, TX on September 7. Along the way she will stop in Washington, DC, Brooklyn, Los Angeles and Seattle, among other markets. All dates are listed below.

Released last October, First Flower is a bright, beautiful album peppered with moments of triumph. The LP is a walk-through Molly’s most intimate thoughts, exploring broken friendships, her relationship to her sister and how she learned to fight overwhelming anxiety. Throughout, her voice is as strong and dexterous as ever, displaying her incredible range and capability as a vocalist. When Hurricane Harvey kept Molly locked in at home, she wrote much of the album, bouncing ideas off her bandmate and boyfriend Dailey Toliver who contributed guitar parts and orchestration suggestions. When it came time to record, Burch chose to work with Erik Wofford at Cacophony Recorders in Austin. Leading up to its release, Molly shared the singles “Wild,” “To The Boys” and “Candy.”
