On July 28 released Molly Sanden new song "Freak", the text is written to a 10 years younger Molly with much less leather on the nose today. A 12 year old ordinary girl who wrestled with his poor sense of self and an inner voice that day pushed her down. The idea of the video for "Freak" is also a strong message, it's based on real events and is about bullying and how it affects your self-image so much so that it feels like your own reflection mocks you. It is about breaking the negative spiral and step out and dare to be yourself. To accept and see the beauty in herself.
-For me previously been criticized and been very insecure in my body, there is great symbolism and strong significance in that I dare to be naked in my video. For me it's a statement that I accept my body and who I am. Recording the video was emotionally tough in many ways, but I think that sometimes it must hurt a little to bring out a strong final product that addresses these kinds of important issues such as bullying and appearance equality, says Molly.
