MØ, with support from Skott and Maya Law, will be headlining The Nick Rayns LCR next week on April 5.
With billions of track streams to her name; collaborations with Major Lazer, Justin Bieber, Cashmere Cat, Charli XCX and Snakehips under her belt; and songs that combined have spent more than six months in the UK charts, MØ is without doubt a musical force to be reckoned with.
‘When I Was Young’ is MØ’s first multitrack project since her critically acclaimed debut ‘No Mythologies to Follow’ and comes after three years of producing individual hit singles.
“Making the EP has been such a nice flashback experience because I forgot about the little things; how you put the songs together, the lyrics, the song titles and the artwork,” she explains.
“Just being in the bubble of that energy is so awesome. It’s so amazing to be able to create a universe.”
Over the six tracks, she displays a diverse catalogue of sound: from the cabaret-esque, daringly exuberant lead single ‘When I Was Young’ to the vibrant dance-pop of ‘Linking With You,’ the slow-burning, dynamic opener ‘Roots’ and elegantly melancholic ‘Turn My Heart To Stone’.
“These years have been a learning process about what’s important, and that’s what this EP reflects,” MØ explains.
“These songs were chosen instinctively, and by a gut feeling really, but they’re all about both looking back and forward.”
Tickets for the show in Norwich are still available from the UEA Box Office website for £15 advance.
