Molly Hammar Unveils New Single ‘DOUCHEBAG’

Swedish R&B/pop singer and songwriter Molly Hammar has just shared her brand new single DOUCHEBAG, out now via Cosmos Music. 

Co-written and produced by Sebastian Atas from successful Swedish electro-pop duo Jübel, DOUCHEBAG is a defiant and witty diss to all the men out there that have miss-treated women. The rich R&B-infused pop production allows for Molly's expressive, smoky vocals to soar and effortlessly convey the empowering message of the beautifully-written lyrics.

The accompanying music video, directed by Hamza Sultan, was shot in a Stockholm nightclub and features fellow Swedish artist JANICE and influencer Alice Stenlöf alongside Molly, who plays both the role of a male sexual predator as well as the empowered female, who ultimately triumphs in the face of adversity. Check it out below!

Speaking about the song/video, Molly said,

Douchebag’ is the most honest song I've ever written. We wrote it in one day and the majority of the vocals are recorded that same day. I basically went straight from the club to the studio, very hungover but mostly fed-up with meeting men that behave like douchebags.
I came up with the video idea the same day, my goal was to show how patriarchal structures remain in all of us and not least in modern pop videos. I wanted to make a satire of how today's Douchebag behaves and let people see it from a woman's perspective. I think we give too many free passes to male artists today and that we often look away from the objectification of women that still exists in pop culture. Last but not least, it is a reminder to the woman. To dare to be a bad bitch. To stand up for oneself.
