Great Pop song. Still missing the NMTF gloominess

Tektiger,

"Final Song" is a super catchy pop song. An extension of “Kamikaze", but better.
However - as a long-time Mø fan, I cannot help but miss the darker uniqueness of my favorite Mø songs like “Waste of Time”, “Fire Rides”, “Slow Love”, “Pilgrim” - really most of NMTF.

The “new sound” - the slick production, the poppy beats, less mournful singing - has cousins on NMTF (“XXX 88”,”Don’t Wanna Dance”) but it still feels "less Mø” and more likely to get lost in the sea of poppy dance songs out there. Hope the upcoming album brings back some of the “old” Mø edge. While “Lean on” maybe Mø’s most successful tune, it is not the best - by a long shot.

SHES BACK

Chrisxtrela,

SO EXCITED for this album… no mythologies to follow was an absolute masterpiece

About MØ

Danish singer Karen Marie Aagaard Ørsted first made an impact on the music scene under the moniker MØ in 2013, when she lent her vocals to Swedish producer Avicii's song "Dear Boy," from his hit album True. Born in Odense, Ørsted began pursuing music after she received a Spice Girls CD when she was ten years old. As she matured, her influences matured too, with the likes of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Sonic Youth, and the Smashing Pumpkins inspiring her electro indie pop sound. She soon took to writing her own music, and in 2012 she was invited to appear at the CMJ music showcase in New York, where she garnered positive reviews.

By 2013, Ørsted had released the single "Pilgrim," which showcased her beat-driven music alongside glitchy electronics, sparse guitar melodies, and sultry vocals. Later in 2013 her popularity rose after her voice appeared on Avicii's track, and again on the back of second single "XXX 88," which featured Diplo and garnered comparisons to contemporaries AlunaGeorge and Grimes. Her eagerly anticipated debut full-length, No Mythologies to Follow, appeared in 2014, led by a pair of Danish Top 40 singles, "Don't Wanna Dance" and "Walk This Way."

In 2015, Orsted scored her first smash hit with Major Lazer and DJ Snake. The multiplatinum "Lean On" topped the charts globally, becoming one of the most streamed songs of all time. By the end of the year, she readied more music for release. First came the "Kamikaze" single, which charted in Denmark, Australia, and the U.K. Next was "Final Song," which premiered in May 2016. Months later, she teamed up with Major Lazer once again on "Cold Water," which featured Orsted and Justin Bieber on vocals. The track became her highest charting single in the U.S. and topped the U.K. singles chart. "Don't Leave," with Snakehips, landed in 2017, as well as "3AM (Pull Up)" with Charli XCX and "9 (After Coachella)" with SOPHIE and Cashmere Cat. ~ Scott Kerr & Neil Z. Yeung
