Over the last couple of years, a Scandinavian pop renewal has been heralded by a generation that values Robyn as much as ABBA or the underground electronic scene. Amidst such acts as Elliphant, Icona Pop, Kate Boy, Beatrice Eli, Niki & the Dove, etc, one Danish artist stands out: MØ. Her first call to fame was last year’s excellent single “Pilgrim”, and though she was quickly compared to grimes, with jumpy punk attitude and long braided hair whipping through the air, Karen Ørsted’s music has matured, proof of which can be found in her first album, the explosive “No Mythologies to Follow”. During this time, she has garnered the attention of Major Lazer, aka Diplo, who gave her the smashing title “XXX 88”. If you are bored with fragile whiney-voiced pop, MØ’s belligerent beats, sporty voice and other high kicks are for you. A from her hair should set the crowds on fire.
