Walk in a wonderland is when listening to the smooth pop ease of MOLTENO’s single ‘Tripping Up’. A veritable exuberance of thoughts in malice and calm, the self indictments of emotions, gather force with subtle righteousness and trepidation.
It’s a wonderland, indeed.
MOLTENO’s inventive dream pop aesthetic aims to transform art pop, lo-fi and alternative r&b influences to an innovative new astral plane.
“‘Tripping Up’ tackles relationship induced toxic behaviour and self-destruction. Atmospheric layered vocals give way to a convergence of eerie yet warm lyrics that centre around a lack of control, set to a soundscape that blends real with surreal.”
The surreal yet hypnotic events of the video for ‘Tripping Up’ (directed by Daisy Moseley) capture the enchanting rhythm of ‘Tripping Up’ alongside lucid imagery that transitions with fluidity and surrealist takes. The video follows the demise of a young woman, played by Tind Soneby Wäneland, capturing the feeling of being out of one’s depth & out of place.
Beauty in the silky drapes of fix rates in feelings – delicately balance between real and realism with MOLTENO at the helm.

𝙎𝙤𝙢𝙚𝙩𝙞𝙢𝙚𝙨 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙜𝙚𝙩 𝙞𝙣 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙤𝙬𝙣 𝙬𝙖𝙮 🧪⛓🥀🍬💊🕳 Excited to introduce you to 𝙏𝙧𝙞𝙥𝙥𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙐𝙥! 𝙏𝙧𝙞𝙥𝙥𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙐𝙥 is about self-destruction, purposefully putting yourself in a toxic place, a jolt from the subconscious for better or worse. To say the world was a different place when this was written would be a massive understatement. Feels different to release music in a lockdown! The music video was shot back in early Jan 2020 when parties could still be experienced IRL 🛸 Hope it gives you some nostalgic feels and soothes your self-isolation.
