“Are you guys sweaty?!” yells MØ at a packed, humid 6 Music stage, “cos I am!” A Duracell bunny of uncontainable energy, she pinballs her way between the front row and the stage floor, tearing through ‘Kamikaze’ in a frenzied burst of limb-flailing dance routines, and loads of braid-twirling to boot.
Nodding back to debut cut ‘Pilgrim’ gives a glimpse back into the rebellious beginnings that have shaped MØ from the off. “I just want to fuck it up,” she declares, balanced atop a speaker, side-stepping security to throw herself into a crowd-surf. “I just couldn’t help it,” she shrugs nonchalantly, shooting the guards a grin and taking to the stage again for ’Final Song’.
It’s with ‘Lean On,’ though – the most streamed song in the history of Spotify, no biggy or anything – that she packs her biggest punch. Already a certified pop star, with a second record on the burner, this is just the beginning for MØ.
