MØ – “New Year’s Eve”

MØ had a pretty big year, though not as big as she probably should have had given the quality of No Mythologies To Follow, but she's not letting the lukewarm reception to her debut on this side of the Atlantic get her down. She's just shared a new track to ring in the New Year… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Lady Gaga, it turns out, did a smart thing. She'd made a shitty, ill-advised, creeped-out video with two guys who became public pariahs shortly thereafter, if they weren't already. And then she scrapped it, though it's certainly possible that she leaked the piece of it that went up on TMZ. She really had to… More »

MØ – “Walk This Way” Video

Few people on this planet are as good at striking dramatic poses in music videos as the Danish pop singer MØ is. MØ's music videos are almost uniformly excellent, and they seem to revolve almost entirely around dramatic poses.

MØ – “Say You’ll Be There” (Spice Girls Cover)

Karen Marie Ørsted caught our eyes and ears exactly one year ago with the video for "Glass." Since then we've been tracking MØ's follow-up singles and anticipating the release of her debut album.

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

It's not a proper music video, so it's not on this list, but Yours Truly's series of videos from the Young Turks new years festival in Tulum, Mexico is the greatest marriage of music and moving images that I've seen this week.

MØ – “Don’t Wanna Dance”

A new track from MØ's upcoming debut album premiered on Zane Lowe's radio show the other night. "Don't Wanna Dance" is the most straightforward pop song the Danish singer has released so far. She trades in her dark synths for handclaps and it's a lot more light-hearted than what we're used to from her, bordering… More »

MØ – “XXX 88″ Video

The icy Danish pop singer MØ appeared on our radar earlier this year with "Glass," but she jumped up another level with the fearsome Diplo-produced banger "XXX 88." And someone spent some serious money on the song's just-released video, which stars MØ as a suburban teenager who imagines herself as some sort of… More »

MØ – “XXX 88″ (Prod. Diplo)

We first heard from Danish singer MØ back in February when she wowed us with her gloomy glitter bomb "Glass." She'll be releasing an EP this fall and this Diplo-produced cut "XXX 88," which is the same kind of dark pop she's known for, is the first single. Check it out below. More »

Broke – “Let The Youth Go Mad” (Feat. MØ) Video (Stereogum Premiere) (NSFW)

Broke is a noisily pounding Danish electro duo, and last year, they released their Lifestyle Music mixtape. On the song "Let The Youth Go Mad," they linked up with fellow Dane MØ, whose "Glass" video is pretty awesome.

MØ – “Glass” Video

MØ, the moniker of Danish singer Karen Marie Ørsted, tackles the schism of carefree youthfulness and approaching adulthood with her skittering track "Glass." The video is the perfect visual manifestation of end-of-the-line rebellion: A dirtier, lonelier version of Rihanna's "We Found Love" that is especially gloomy due to its Scandinavian locale and the dearth… More »
