New Track: Molly Nilsson releases ‘Happyness’

Swedish-born, Berlin-based synthpop artist Molly Nilsson just dropped a new album, appropriately named Zenith. Nilsson’s personal celestial peak has come with a slew of new music videos showcasing her late-twentieth-century aesthetic, dripping with MTV nostalgia that’s self-aware without being satirical, sentimental without being camp.

Following her tribute to Windows 95 is “Happyness.” In this upbeat yet vulnerable diary entry of a song, Nilsson teaches us that while others can hurt and disappoint you, you can always depend on yourself for a sense of fulfillment. The video shows Nilsson et al preparing Zenith merchandise and posters for an upcoming show, and it ends with a post-concert celebration, bringing us backstage and forcing us to confront the singer in a personal, intimate way. Beyond the alienation of technology she writes about so eloquently, this is happiness: hanging with friends, cracking a few beers, and sharing music with the world.
