+ Lost Map DJs
Lost Map Record’s latest signing Molly Linen returns with a new single ‘When They Didn’t Care’,
released on streaming services and via Lost Map’s PostMap Club series on 27 th September. It is taken from Linen’s debut Outside EP which follows on 4th October.
Molly Linen is a Shropshire-born, Glasgow-based songwriter and guitarist. Her beguiling voice is both
emotive yet serene recalling the dulcet whispered tones of Cat Power, layered upon melodic guitar
lines which draw influence from artist such as Devon Sproule and Nick Drake.
Linen’s latest single ‘When They Didn’t Care’ touches on, as Linen explains, “Worrying too much about what other people think, and the moment you realise that they don’t actually really care.” The single follows the release of Linen’s wonderfully received debut single ‘Away’ (May 2019), which was
described as “remarkably mature, so beautifully focused, and so frightfully exciting” by influential blog
For The Rabbits, with radio play from the likes of BBC 6Music (Gideon Coe) and BBC Radio Scotland
(Vic Galloway and Roddy Hart). Whilst at Spotify the single was added to several high-profile playlists
including NPR’s, with the track featuring on both their ‘New Music Friday’ round-up, and again in
producer Lar Gotrich’s own playlist.
The forthcoming Outside EP, from which both singles are taken, is a collection of accomplished,
atmospheric and personal songs written in, and inspired by, Linen’s life in rural Shropshire and the
West End of Glasgow where the EP was recorded. As Linen expands “Some of the songs on the
Outside EP reflect on my personal experiences of being out in nature and feeling the many emotional
benefits, whilst others are observations of being in particular environments and noticing small details.”
The Outside EP was written by Molly Linen (guitar/vocals) and features Beth Chalmers (keyboard,
harmonium and vocals), Liam Chapman (drums, synth and vocals) and Gemma Fleet (bass). It was
recorded by Ronan Fay at Green Door Studios, Glasgow, and mastered by Steven Ward.
