Hotly-tipped Danish songstress MØ, aka. Karen Marie Ørsted, is stirring up buzz throughout the global blogosphere these days. Tastemaker media such as Pitchfork, The Guardian and NME wrote highly about her and her first single ‘Pilgrim’ will be released in the UK and the US on Chess Club and Neongold. Her debut album will be out later this year.
MØ is spending the fall in the studio, wrapping up her highly anticipated debut album with Ronni Vindahl of Danish producer entity No Wav.
Listeners can expect a lush, warm and soulful production however, MØ brings the Scandinavian cold/cool and a street vibe edge to the songs, which makes for a sonic juxtaposition.
Her unique mix of indie, pop, hip-hop, electro and soul is hella fresh sounding and it genuinely sounds like MØ is fighting a battle of mixed emotions inside of herself. There is not much info out there on MØ, who tends to let her music do the talking, but her facebook biography reveals a glimpse of her current state of mind:
”The snow nation is eating your brain and your young heart – dark as the apocalypse. So just go perish in the snøw. mø mø mø MØ MØ MØ”
