If the Diplo-produced XXX 88 wasn’t enough to leave you wanting to hear more from Danish songstress Karen Marie Ørsted, better known by her stage moniker MØ, the follow up single Never Wanna Know is sure to make it happen.
MØ is currently sitting atop the most blogged artist chart on Hype Machine, no mean feat. Never Wanna Know, a tip of the hat to the shimmering pop of the ’80s with a dash of Lana Del Rey, puts the angelic vocals of Ørsted atop subtle drums and a distance riff.
Don’t let the shiny veneer fool you, either – Never Wanna Know also bares its fangs, and modern hooks will snap you out of your nostalgic haze and add a bit of 2013 to proceedings.
The new song builds on previous tracks, including last year’s Pilgrim, which all indicate the singer/songwriter has every intention of carving out her own niche somewhere between dream-pop and EDM.
Both Never Wanna Know and XXX 88 will be featured on the forthcoming Bikini Daze EP, which you will be able to get your mitts on come Friday, 18th October. Trust us, you’ll dig it.
