Los Angeles singer-songwriter and producer Molly Moore releases a new track, entitled "I Love You But I Don't Like You."

Moore explains the inspiration for the song: "Sadness is like a costume that you can't take off. Being in a long term relationship & grieving is one of the hardest things I've ever had to navigate, especially when anger and confusing emotions are displaced onto the other person. It almost sometimes seems easier to leave and isolate yourself so you don't have a negative impact on the people closest to you."

Originally from the Bronx, Moore grew up in Hudson, NY, listening to artists like Alanis Morissette, Aretha Franklin, and Gwen Stefani. After graduating high school early, she engrossed herself in music, soon moving to L.A. Her first single, "Peace of My Heart," went viral. In addition to her solo career, she's also one-half of pop duo Cosmos & Creature with EMAN8, aka Brandyn Burnette.

"I Love You But I Don't Like You" opens on wicked, dark colors atop a muscular rhythm. Pulsing synths infuse the harmonics with R&B hues flavored with hints of pop. Moore's voice imbues the lyrics with subtle pitiless savors of honesty and discontent.

"Oops I got your blood on my hands / You should run as far as you can / Do I sound psycho / Where did my mind go / Used to be red hot / Guess we went ice cold / And I know I know I know you might misunderstand / Don't misunderstand me."

"I Love You But I Don't Like You" delivers a deliciously impish take on an age old experience.
