Obnoxiously Talented…

…and ready to die

Pippi, played by Molly Nilsson, is a young woman daydreaming her life away. Despite her obsession with luxury and money, she finds work and societal commitments boring. Living off the wealth accumulated by her absent father, a sea-faring colonial explorer, she spends her time indulging in nocturnal fantasies together with her two inanimate companions, a headless torso and a hedonistic skeleton. In Obnoxiously Talented we spend a day in the life of the three friends, freed from the shackles of convention and order.

Ladies and Gentlemen…please welcome the evening’s main event: 4 years on from our defending champion’s last title match, we’re back in business and ready for glory.

In one corner we have, wearing black and weighing in at 123 pounds, undefeated for more than a decade and with a professional record of 14 years of victories including 10 knockout albums, the Swedish Nightmare, the Wonder Girl of the Underworld, the Hooligan of Your Heart, the featherweight World champion of Power Ballads and Morbid Hits, the one and only Molly Nilsson.

Celebrating the release of her newest LP, Extreme, and wrapping up an extensive European tour, Molly’s coming in hot and ready to keep her crown.

In the other corner, the challengers, also wearing black: the Berliner Porteños, the most dangerous duo in Neukölln, the toughest twosome in the city, from beautiful Buenos Aires, Argentina: Mueran Humanos.

Fresh out of training, their latest album Regression under the belt and with more than a decade of heavy hitting world tours and 3 records, get ready for 12 rounds of killer compositions and incredible energy!
Put your hands together and step into Hole44 for Molly Nilsson’s EXTREME record release show and European tour closing concert, presented by Dark Skies Association, Shameless/Limitless & Channel Music.

DARK SKIES ASSOCIATION and NIGHT SCHOOL RECORDS are proud to announce Molly Nilsson’s new album EXTREME. Out January 15 2022. Pre-orders begin today!

Watch and listen to the first single ABSOLUTE POWER here! Music video by Graw Böckler and Molly Nilsson.

EXTREME is Molly Nilsson’s tenth studio album. 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 centre 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. Pre-orders begin today, visit our online shop.

Hey Moon!

In case anyone was wondering, I’m a lifelong supporter of Antifa.  Like most of us, I was appalled by what we saw in DC this week and by the people present there. In response to this DSA and Night School Records have decided to release a 7” single of my original song Hey Moon (2008), with ALL PROFITS from the sale donated to BLACK LIVES MATTER  worldwide. Pre-orders available now and shipping as soon as we have them (approximately 10 weeks from the moment I type this).
Pre-orders from DSA online shop and Bandcamp available now.


Time to give thanks for yet another terrific year! Thank you to everyone who showed their support and shared their time and smiles with us! A very special thanks to everyone who helped organize concerts across the globe, and of course everyone who came out to our shows and parties; You Made Our Year! ♥︎ Excited for this fresh page of the decade, a sketchbook waiting to be filled with music and motion. See you in 2020!

Yours truly,

Molly Nilsson

DARK SKIES ASSOCIATION are proud and excited to announce the release of Molly Nilsson’s 8th full length album this fall, a co-release with Night School Records: 2020.

"After a cancelled flight I found myself stranded at the Tokyo airport overnight. Between my interrupted bench naps the surroundings found their way into my dreams, particularly the big banners in the departure hall stating: 2020. Not aware that they were announcing upcoming
Olympic games, my imagination wandered. 2020, a leap year. The year of the rat, the election. Perfect vision. The year of hindsight. The repetition, the ritual  of the superstitious. A spell cast on the approaching future; not yet there, but close enough to be seen with full clarity. The year itself seems to draw a circle around its followers, as to protect anyone who dares enter. 
And it all begins on a late-Capitalist night…"

2 0 2 0 is out November 2nd 2018 on LP, CD and digital through DSA and Night School Records.
The first single, Serious Flowers, can be heard here.

Not Today Satan

“Follow the light, to the other side of the night…”

Follow The Light LP
Follow The Light CD

“The beginning moments of Molly Nilsson’s second (sic) album Follow The Light now seem like the start of a personal mythology that was to reach further than she could have imagined. Few contemporary artists have so seeped into the underground pop psyche than the Stockholm-born songwriter. After releasing her debut These Things Take Time on hand-made CDrs, Nilsson’s follow up was a leap in scope and ambition. Of course, the personal takes on a tumultuous life in Berlin and the journeys to and from it inform the songs as before, but there’s a growing maturity in the songwriting in evidence. From the diary pages of These Things Take Time to a growing stature as a songwriter in touch with the universal, Follow The Light contains many of Nilsson’s now firm fan-favourites.”

Breaking News: North American Tour 2015 with TOPS


All dates and cities to be continued…

UPDATE: Old promises and new ones

Torstrassen festival

Ok, so obviously end of May is already here. And as we promised earlier this year to have the new Molly Nilsson album out by now it’s time to break the silence. So… The album has been a liiittle bit delayed, which means it will be out and ready for your ears and hearts in August… 2018.

NOOOO just kidding. 2015. TWO-THOUSAND-AND-FIFTEEN. But do not despair dear friends, the waiting has made it all the better. Like a bottle of pink champagne. Or an evasive lover. Meanwhile we will sporadically drop songs on videos over the web throughout the (so called) summer to remind you that we still love you. That was all for know. Peace.

New album


Molly Nilsson’s new album is almost ready for the world. Preliminary release date set to end of May 2015. Meanwhile we are taking a break from action. Hang in there.

More information on this in its due time.

Video Premiere: Plaza Italia

Music: Molly Nilsson

EP: Sólo Paraíso
Label: Dark Skies Association

Buenos Aires / Berlin 2006 / 2014

Sólo Paraíso

Sólo Paraíso

Pop music rarely comes as honest and heartfelt as when delivered by Molly Nilsson. Having traveled around the world singing to the romantic and the doomed, Nilsson found herself in the late Summer of 2014 in Buenos Aires. Inspired by the crumbling landscape and the heavy hearts that populate it, Sólo Paraíso is not only an ode to a specific time and space but a musical novella that meditates on youth, idealism and belonging. The soundtrack to a summer you thought you had when looking over bleached out old photo albums.

Thanks for bearing with us. For more info read here:

Dear Life,
I would never call you a bitch
All my miseries have made me rich
Dear Life, you know I love you secretly
even when you’re talking dirty to me
And I’m not only saying this cause I’m drunk
(though I am) I should tell you more often
if I think that I can
I really mean it, I really mean it
I really really mean it tonight

Take me through these avenues and boulevards
my rushing blood is a racing car tonight
I felt so high on life
These endless streets, my tired feet
are gonna get us far from wherever we are tonight
it felt so close tonight

Dear Life,
you felt so close tonight

From the airplane window the cities far below
look like glowing vomits in the snow
These sails will bring me where the wind is gonna blow
where we’ll go don’t tell me cause I don’t wanna know

Dear Life,
you felt so close tonight

My Modern Museum

Music video by Ernst Markus Stein. Song taken from History (DSA 2011).


Baby, sometimes I don’t understand you
You’re the abstract art in my Modern Museum
Baby, sometimes we fall apart
but the ruins of my heart stand like the Colosseum
I hope you die, by my side
the two of us at the exact same time
I hope we die, long from now
the two of us at the exact same time

Maybe it’s all beyond control but baby you can have my soul
I hope you die, by my side
Maybe it’s all ages away but I can’t help but think of the day
I hope we die at the exact same time
Baby, your lungs are bigger than a football field
I’m the hooligan of your heart
sometimes we win and sometimes we lose our dreams
but I‘ll always wear the colours of your team
Baby, you’re the coolest moon when the nights begun
I’m a goth in the sun and we can sleep through the summer days
I know you think I’m morbid when i say
I hope you die, by my side
the two of us at the exact same time
I hope we die, long from now
the two of us at the exact same time

After more than a year of slumber SILVER has awoken from a deep tape sleep. This Greatest Hits Compilation was originally released as a Christmas Special 2010, containing 10 evergreens from Molly Nilsson’s first 3 albums and also 2 previously unreleased tracks. This release is limited to an edition of 100 copies, all handnumbered by the artist herself (as always). When we first brought it out we had to spend long nights awake listening to the same tracks over and over again, drinking out of bottles, whilst recording over used cassettes purchased from thriftshops. Although this may sound like fun (we thought so too to begin with) it soon got tiring and the production was put on ice after only a dozen copies had been made.

Until now. Thanks to machines, located somewhere on the British Isles who did the work for us. This second round of SILVER is the same as the first in the regard of content and edition but since they are professionally recorded and printed they will actually play at the right speed. (This may be a good thing or a bad thing depending on your approach to music as a commodity).  Please note that this release is made on cassette only.

Side A Silver, When Boys Don’t Call, 8000 days, The Lonely, We’re Never Coming Home, Won’t Somebody Take Me Out Tonight
Side B Europa, More Certain than Death, In the Mood for a Tattoo, Last Forever, Truth, A Song They Won’t Be Playing on the Radio.

Molly Nilsson European HISTORY Tour

DARK SKIES ASSOCIATION are busy planning the shows in and around Europe for the next few months to which Molly Nilsson will bring and present her latest opus, HISTORY. This is Nilsson’s (so far) most extensive tour in Europe and brings her to many new and exciting places, as well as returning to old friends in familiar corners of the continent.

Among the countries confirmed and booked are U.K.(it will be good!), Spain (why haven’t we been there before?), Poland (always a pleasure!), Czech Republic (finally!) and more.

Visit our Events & Shows page or have a look at the facebook event for dates, venues and links.


For all of the autumn of 2011, the planet Jupiter has been in backwards motion in Taurus causing all kinds of bankruptcies and personal hardships. By the first day of 2012, the planet Jupiter will have been in forward motion a week, allowing most people to become more grounded financially.
For small independent record labels this could mean more shows for the signed artists (for example Molly Nilsson), which may even result in a European tour and later on in the year a US-tour. A wonderful time for all of humanity will be when Jupiter enters the sign of Gemini on June 6th and brings fantastic financial news for everybody but especially for communications, media and independent record labels. This will be a good time to release a new album.

Horoscope in 2012 has the DARK SKIES ASSOCIATION filled with activity on the home and the work front. Changes that began to occur in 2011 now require planned actions. Continue with important assignments, and conduct in a manner of caution and precision.
Focus on your close bonds and cherish them, as this is the best way to enhance the year.

Happy New Year!

Molly Nilsson HISTORY is Album of the Week on Rough Trade.

Completely diy and self-produced, Molly adorns her songs of longing and emotional alienation with a powerful, resonant voice that is able to strike out across the voids of distance and space to touch the listener directly. ‘History’ is Nilsson’s fourth album proper and is a lush portrayal of a lone figure finding her way in the world.

Molly Nilsson HISTORY out now on CD and digital download.

Hotel Home

DARK SKIES ASSOCIATION are proud to present the 2nd single and video from Molly Nilsson’s upcoming album HISTORY, Hotel Home, shot entirely on her phone during the Last 4-ever US-Tour in November 2011. Enjoy!

Video Premiere: Skybound

DARK SKIES ASSOCIATION, among many others, enjoy the long dark nights ahead by lifting our eyes to gaze the star filled sky. Today it is 410 years ago the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe died in Prague. And although Brahe himself was an important scientist, leaving the world with his countless and at that time most accurate observations of the planetary motions, it is the life and deed by his assistant we would like to commemorate by presenting the first video from the upcoming album, Skybound, A homage to Johannes Kepler. Please note that it (like most our videos) contains some copyright infringement and due to this an incorrect music link is posted in the right corner (who is Gabriele Bellini anyway?), it also features advertisement which is out of our control since it’s a choice made by the copyright holder. None the less, enjoy the song and video by following this link.
