Molly Drag is the solo project of Michael Charles Hansford started in Autumn of 2014. in London, Ontario then moving to Montreal in summer of 2016. Encouraged by dear friends and driven by a desire for expression through music and the hope to create emotionally connecting and healing art, now located in Montreal - Hansford began releasing music online as Molly Drag. Each release is self-created, recorded and produced and is an act of honest, and often raw expression; a true catharsis for artist themself and listener alike. The music of Molly Drag creates a sense of wistful longing, heartache and noble beauty; like exploring the rooms of your childhood home, long since abandoned, light timidly filtering through dust-covered windows, illuminating all the memories that once filled its walls.
“Thumper is yet another work of honesty, emotion and nostalgic beauty; an exploration of memories long since buried, reconciliations and cautious hopefulness. Another chapter of earnest expression; another hope to provide solace for those who listen. “ - Tiny Mix Tapes
“[Molly Drag is]” unflinching self-expression at its best, creating songs that hook themselves into the listener and refuse to leave, despite how much pain they hold.” - Noisey
“[Molly Drag’s] album feels less like a collection of songs and more like a soundtrack to the mist...the song-writing here is so solidly endearing that such listlessness becomes its notable, engaging heart.” - Gold Flake Paint
Slow Rosary :
In Slow Rosary, Rene Duplantier turns a basic set of chords into the pages of a journal full of run-on sentences. Passages about the landscapes of the Gulf Coast and the Southwest are muddled with musings on a lost love, a dying Earth, and an angry god. With a delivery intended to take the air out of tuned-in listeners, Duplantier admits it may just be less exhausting to hold a good conversation over his set.
