Do you ever stumble upon an upcoming artist and get that knowing feeling inside? That feeling where you know that you found something so good that you need to tell everyone and their mother about it? The latest source of me feeling that way is the Danish singer MØ.
Hailing from the beautiful Scandinavian city of Copenhagen, Denmark, MØ is someone you’ll be hearing about more and more over then next while. Guaranteed. This 23-year old, whose real name is Karen Marie Ørsted, mixes up her soulful voice in a fresh new way complete with catchy hooks and electronic vibes. She’s only got two tracks out (“Maiden” and “Pilgrim”) but both are so good that I’ve had them on repeat ever since I stumbled upon her.
MØ’s been touted as the next Grimes but I see her as more of a hybrid combining the talents of Lykke Li, Santigold and Little Dragon – all of which are a few of her musical influences. She’s currently working on her debut LP and I honestly cannot wait to hear more from her.
