MØ at Governors Ball 2015

By Will Oliver, August 3rd 2015

1_Mo_Governors Ball 2015

Seeing Danish pop-star is always a treat. Formally known as Karen Ørsted, the singer has seen a significant rise in her stock in recent months thanks to her featured vocal spot on Major Lazer’s successful single “Lean On.”

I first saw the result of this back at Boston Calling in May, and this carried over yet again at Governors Ball back in June, where Ørsted rocked the Gotham Tent with confidence and ease. I’ve watched her grow as an artist over the years, and she continues to impress. It’s only a matter of time before she starts taking over the festival main stages.

MØ at Boston Calling 2015

1_Mo_Boston Calling

It’s always a pleasure to see the ever growing Danish pop star rise to the occasion, no matter how big the stage. She’s come a long way since playing our CMJ party in 2012, now able to command an audience at festivals such as Boston Calling.

She’s probably better suited for a late night performance, but she still worked the midday crowd to a frenzy, getting the party started with relative ease. It certainly helps that her songs are big and pop-minded in all the right ways, and that she is an enthusiastic performer who can constantly be seen running across the stage, and going in for her routine crowd surf.

MØ is building quite the audience along the way, and will be a staple at music festivals for a long time coming. Can’t wait to see what she does on her eventual second album, which will surely take her to even bigger things.

MØ @ Music Hall Of Williamsburg (May 23, 2014)

By Will Oliver, May 25th 2014


The ascent of has been a pleasure to watch. Every time I see her name it seems like she’s rising the ranks further, well on her way to stardom of her own. It’s no surprise, she does indie-pop in the right way. Her debut album No Mythologies To Follow is a highly enjoyable record, and she brought that experience to life extremely well.

Mø @ Fader Fort (March 14, 2014)

By Will Oliver, March 21st 2014


The first (and last time) that I saw Danish rising star , was at a small show (that I helped put on!) in loft in Brooklyn during CMJ 2012. So it was a big leap to see how command the Fader Fort stage down as SXSW, but a well deserved change. She’s come a long way. Mø just released her debut LP No Mythologies To Follow and took over the stage with the same confidence and swagger that I remember from her performance at CMJ

From what I saw, the crowd ate her up, and I continue to believe that big things are on the way for her soon. All is well deserved.

She has a few upcoming New York City dates including Glasslands on May 22 and Mercury Lounge on May 23.

[new]: MØ – Don’t Wanna Dance

Mo - Dont Wanna Dance

MØ’s upcoming debut album No Mythologies To Follow is definitely one of my most anticipated releases of the year. I’m excited to see what she can do on a full length, and we will find out when the album is released on Chess Club/RCA Victor February 24.

“Don’t Wanna Dance” is the latest single to be shared from the album, and if you found yourself enamored by all of her previous work, you’ll have no problem falling for this one. I have a feeling that this will be one of the best pop records of the whole year, and it’s pretty much a guarantee that MØ breaks out in a big way in the next year.

Enjoy “Don’t Wanna Dance” below.

[music video]: MØ – XXX 88 (Feat. Diplo)

A lot can happen in a year. It was actually about 11 months ago that I first posted about . The young Danish singer has been slowly rising further and further up, and now she’s working on songs with Diplo. Yes, that Diplo. He produced the song. Looks like seeing her play at loft parties are now a thing of the past.

The song is called “XXX 88” and it’s another pop treat from the girl who just naturally seems to release these gems with ease. It’s a contagious little track, and it features a pretty awesome video as well that features a (very, very) brief appearance from Diplo.

The “XXX 88” single will be out October 20 via Chess Club/RCA Victor. Find the video posted below via Gorilla vs. Bear.

MØ – Pilgrim (Yours Truly Session)

By Will Oliver, March 5th 2013


put on one of my favorite shows during CMJ. She sounded amazing live, almost identical to her records. It’s no surprise that the result is just as good on her performance of “Pilgrim” that she did for Yours Truly. She performed this last October at the Moonlab Studios.

Watch the performance below.

[music video]: MØ – Glass

By Will Oliver, February 15th 2013

MØ - Glass

The music video for MØ’s “Glass” was directed by Casper Balslev and features her in a small Danish town called Hirtshals. Here’s what she had to say about it:

The video is inspired by the lyrics to “Glass”, which tries to visualize the restlessness of a young person’s mind. It’s a boredom, an insatiability and anxiety. Fear of getting old, fear of missing things and fear to love. The video is shot in small Danish town called Hirtshals, which represents the provincial society well. I myself grew up in a small town, and know the feeling of restlessness and wanderlust. It reflects on a young girl’s burning desire to do something, but she has no idea what, how or where to begin. In the end it is always easier just to do nothing and wait for the dawning of a new day.

Love the song, and the video works it’s own magic on you as you listen.
