Molly Hanmer & The Midnight Tokers Share “Get Loose”
L.A. based Molly Hanmer & The Midnight Tokers have released “Get Loose,” the second offering from Hanmer’s upcoming sophomore album of the same name. The new single is the follow-up to “Sick of Me,” Molly’s highly anticipated first drop in three years since her debut LP ‘Stuck in Daydream.’
With “Get Loose,” the singer stakes her claim to the ripping guitars of rock n’ roll and blues, oozing with a contagious boldness. The track marks a complete metamorphosis from her Americana and psychedelic origins to her new no-holes-barred sound. The depth of “Get Loose” is underpinned by her hunger to create music that incites real emotion, an all-important endeavor in the wake of the pandemic, and the social upheaval experienced over the last two years.
The lyrics of the single implore its listeners to ‘get loose’, while the heavy, grooving riffs lead by example. The song generates an almost immediate and unstoppable need to start banging your head the rhythm, an empowering anthem that does exactly what it says on the tin. “Get Loose” is an unrestrained meditation from Molly, as she shakes off any bridles holding back her full musical force.
‘“Get Loose” is our carpe diem song. The pandemic woke us up to the value of being alive. And this single is a reminder to savor that, to open our hearts and minds, to break the so-called rules. Carpe Diem, dance as if no-one is watching sort of thing.” – Molly Hanmer
