With her newest single “So Jealous” singer-songwriter MOLI opens up about the effects of living in such a digitally consumed era. Her lush synth-pop ballad questions how easy it is to alter our online persona, whilst having to face her own deep-rooted anxieties. Becoming consumed by her own social media newsfeed, MOLI finds someone that causes her mind to run wild, singing, “Her face her lips her curves / She shows a lot a skin / She’s probably insecure / But hiding it within / She gets a lot of likes / most of them are guys / One of them is you / It’s much to my dislike”
