Molly Hanmer and The Midnight Tokers present upbeat new single: “Fool’s Run”

Molly Hanmer & The Midnight Tokers, a Folk/Americana quartet based out of Los Angeles, CA. are ready to make you stomp your boots on the floorboards and clap along to their latest single, “Fool’s Run”. The track is a dynamic mix of blues guitar, Americana attitude, a pinch of rock influences and some psychedelic folk tossed in for good measure. The end result is a catchy four-minute track that would fit in any dive bar in the USA or the next Dukes of Hazzard movie.

“Fool’s Run” is the first single off Molly Hanmer & The Midnight Tokers’ debut album stuck in a Daydream, due this October. The album was produced by Marvin Etzioni (co-founder of Lone Justice; who has produced/played on albums by Peter Case, Stephen Stills, Judy Collins, Bob Dylan, Lucinda Williams, Keith Richards etc.) and was engineered/mixed by 2-time Grammy winner Sheldon Gomberg (Ben Harper, Ryan Adams, Lucinda Williams, Rickie Lee Jones).

“I wrote Fool’s Run in Monterey after returning from a solo trip to Ireland. I had just ended a 5-year relationship and was planning a move to L.A. so change was afoot. I’d had this major realization that I had been taking care of other people but neglecting my own life and I was ready to change that. As I sat down to write I thought the song would just flow out of me to match my sense of inner knowing but instead, I wrestled with it, as I had wrestled with these ideas my whole life. Ultimately, Fool’s Run became my anthem, a declaration of sorts that I could ‘sing a different song’, my own.”

– Molly Hanmer.
