One of the greatest new artists of our time; MØ reportedly went from listening to pop music including The Spice Girls, who she later brilliantly covered, to punk rock.
Reportedly heavily into the punk scene as a teenager, her early influences are said to include none other than Black Flag, Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, Yeah Yeah Yeah’s, and Sonic Youth. Reportedly citing Kim Gordon as a role model (source: Wikipedia), it is no surprise to us how cool MØ’s musical tastes, history, and musical education are, when listening to her music; and simply falling in love with it.
And yet, MØ is like none of these artists who influenced her, or like anyone of her time. Brilliantly unique and creative, the range and quality of MØ’s voice alone would be commendable. Add to that however her ever-present cool style, charisma, and personality in her videos and interviews, and you have a musical star. Add songwriting, musical collaborations, and instrumentation that is wholly brilliant and groundbreaking, with some of the biggest producers in the world, and you have exactly what MØ is; legendary.
Her passionate, beautiful song “Slow Love” is performed by her live, here below;
Fueling a passionate, and heartfelt vocal delivery in each of her songs, with a beautiful warmth and range, and mixing genres from new wave, techno, pop, and more, MØ defines the so called “experimental pop” genre that has swept the underground and mainstream alike. From other experimental pop artists including; Lorde, Elliphant, Grimes, Tove Lo, Kimbra, and a small handful of others, MØ has emerged as truly one of the greatest new singers and musical stars of our time.
Debuting her solo career after a number of experimental projects, her debut album “No Mythologies to Follow” has resulted in a myriad of outstanding works.
With her signature “holler” in many of her songs, a lovely and unique voice, and simply brilliant songs, to working with top DJ producers including Major Lazer. Diplo, and more, MØ has delivered one brilliant and classic cut after another.
I had the great pleasure to see MØ this year in L.A. (Pamona, California to be exact), and she was nothing less than extraordinary. Herein below, is the latest great new single by MØ with Diplo, “Sun In Our Eyes. ”
MØ states:️ “Sun In Our Eyes; This song is the lead single off my new album Forever Neverland! OMFFFFFFG I CAN’T BELIEVE I’M F I N A L L Y ANNOUNCING MY ALBUM!!! – coming this October 19th!!
