MØ appears to have rocked up today hell bent on one single mission; to cover every single square foot of the John Peel stage. Fair play to her, she does an excellent job.
She’s goading the crowd through her debut cut ‘Pilgrim’ from the speaker towers one second, before legging it up to the front row’s shoulders more or less every other song, tackling virtually unaired new songs – minimal giant ‘Goodbye’ which she’s only played live once before included – back to back with ‘No Mythologies To Follow’. The entire tent is exploding in response.
‘Final Song’ – most probably destined for MØ’s in-progress second record – hits the button on an especially cranked up setting of pandemonium, but predictably, it’s her Major Lazer hook-up, ‘Lean On’ which pushes things completely over the edge into a new level of mayhem. There’s not a single person in the tent who isn’t howling along. Today’s set is a crash course in being a bad-ass pop star.
