MØ, hailing all the way from Copenhagen, is a 23-year-old talent that had me sold on her after only two songs. After seeing her perform live, I assure you that this girl is going to make us all proud. She arguably put on my favorite show of CMJ.
This was one of her first shows in the U.S., and in general. This could have gone many ways, but she put all my worries aside the minute her voice went through the mic and graced the speakers. She has an incredible voice, and already has a stage presence down pact. She looked confident, sexy, and seemed to be enjoying herself.
All the tunes sounded great, with a dance edge, with some incredible vocals over them. It would be easy to just compare her to artist like Lykke Li or Grimes, but MØ is her own lady. Her songs had a fresh appeal to them with plenty of glamor and an easy knack for being awesomely catchy. She had the whole crowd in the palm of her hand. I could sense something special was happening, and for any of you that were there, I know you agree with me.
This girl is special. I’m glad I can say I saw her in a loft party, because someday she will be capturing audiences at much bigger venues.
