Synthpop artist Molly Nilsson released her 10th studio album, Extreme, earlier this year, and the Swedish musician visits DC9 on a North American tour on Wednesday, Oct. 5.

The letter X marks the spot, crosses over, literally with a cross. It’s the former, the ex-. The ex-lover known simply as “an ex”. Ex- is the latin prefix meaning “out.” Exterior, an exit. Extraordinary. Excellent. It’s exciting. Generation X. X-files. X is the unknown. X is Extreme.

Extreme is Molly Nilsson’s tenth studio album, released in 2022 by Night School Records. Recorded in 2019 and throughout the 2020 global pandemic at home in Berlin, Extreme is a departure for Nilsson, an explosion of angry love. It’s an album of anthems for the jilted generation, soaked with joy and offering solace, bristling with distorted, Metal guitars and planet-sized choruses that bring light to the dark center of the galaxy. It’s an album of the times, by the times, and for the people. It’s a record about power. About how to fight it, how to take it, and how to share it.

Watch the official music video for “Pompeii” by Molly Nilsson on YouTube:

Molly Nilsson’s biggest, boldest and most vital album to date, Extreme is about power. Against the love of power and for the power of love.

“USA! It’s that time again. Time for me to come over to the USA and save your life for a night,” Molly wrote in a news update.
