Event InformationMØ may not mind how you say her name, but you'd better start practising your Danish pronunciation; the 28-year-old singer-songwriter is one of the fastest rising pop stars on the planet and is currently putting the finishing touches to her eagerly anticipated second album, due for release in 2017.
Since the release of her highly acclaimed debut album No Mythologies To Follow in 2014, MØ has had two worldwide smash hits with Major Lazer, ‘Lean On’ and ‘Cold Water’ - the former the most-streamed song ever on Spotify and the latter debuted at number 1 in the UK singles chart. She also gained her first top 10 as a solo artist with ‘Final Song,’ and her most recent single ‘Nights With You’ was premiered by MistaJam on BBC Radio 1, and hit more than five million streams in less than a week across Spotify and YouTube. She has also collaborated with artists as diverse as Charli XCX, Snakehips, SOPHIE and Cashmere Cat.
MØ has played sold out tours solo and with Major Lazer, and has won over festival crowds worldwide. She has played to a sold out 10,000 capacity crowd in Copenhagen, and recently announced her biggest UK & Ireland tour to date, including a show at the 5,000 capacity O2 Academy Brixton in London.
Karen Marie Ørsted grew up on Funen, one of Denmark's largest islands, and she wrote her first song when she was seven years old. Even then there were traces of the bittersweet heartache that forms the backbone of her current skewed pop: the first single was called 'Don't Believe What People Say’. Karen was a pop obsessive until she became a teenager when she became very involved with politics, punk and the anti-fascism movement, leading her to discover the music of Sonic Youth, Black Flag, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins and Yeah Yeah Yeahs, amongst others.
At 18 she formed a “noisy, trashy electro-pop punk band” named Mor with her friend Josefine. But Karen had started to write songs on her own, trying out a variety of sounds and styles on her laptop in her bedroom, and in 2009, she became MØ. At first, MØ was almost a character, a larger-than-life exaggeration of Karen's attitude. But slowly she found her own voice, swapping the rapping for singing and then meeting Ronni Vindahl, a producer and guitarist whose work Kendrick Lamar used on ‘Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe’. Suddenly everything fell into place and the sound of MØ was born.
