Molly Moore – “Natural Disaster” (MTS Remix)

Stirring strings and riveting keys serve as the instrumental forces throughout “Natural Disaster” (MTS Remix), though it’s Molly Moore’s fierce vocals and knack for hook-y melodic variation that shines brightest. The track – written by the Los Angeles-based Moore, Melanie Fontana, Steve Dresser and the recently featured Brandyn Burnette – takes on an emotional vein of symphonic pop, centered around the sleek “natural disaster” chorus. The strings, arranged and performed by Yoed Nir String Productions, breathe extra life into this genuinely impressive track.

Below is what Moore had to say about the video, released on VEVO today:

We filmed the video in Huntington Beach and made some stops along the way for some other scenes. We wanted to go for more of a cinematic looking story with the song being the soundtrack. A funny behind the scenes story… the running shot was actually us being kicked out of the shipping/storage area we were guerilla-style shooting in. The themes & symbolism with imagery are all deriving from the idea that our darkness is a figment of our imagination. We can choose to follow it, or run from it, or let it take us over. I wanted to paint the picture of a cat & mouse chase between body/mind/spirit/light & fear. I liked this concept so much because while it encapsulates the brooding, emotional vibe of the song, I found it to be empowering in a visceral way. Ultimately the message for me was to express this kind of relationship in an artistic, creatively impactful way… I wanted people to question whether the darkness is coming from an external source or if it’s possibly an internal, self-fulfilling prophecy.
