Every Monday through Friday, we deliver a different song as part of our Song of the day podcast subscription. This podcast features exclusive KEXP in-studio performances, unreleased songs, and recordings from independent artists that our DJ’s think you should hear. Today’s song, featured on the Afternoon Show with Kevin Cole, is “Wrong For You” by Molly Burch from her 2017 album, Please Be Mine, released on Captured Tracks.
Today’s featured track, “Wrong For You,” finds Burch lamenting lost, misbegotten love, the repeated refrain of “I know that I am so very wrong for you” gaining additional power as Burch details the emotional fallout of a relationship. The guitar work rings brightly above Burch’s voice, joined by gently circling piano and organ. One is left with a trace of a rapidly maturing songwriter and the glimmer of a faded relationship.
Molly Burch will be performing live in Seattle at The Timbre Room on May 5th. Look for more about Molly on her website and Facebook page. For now, here’s the sun-kissed video for her track “Please Be Mine,” the title-track from her debut LP:
