Karen Marie Ørsted, better known by her stage name MØ is a Danish singer-songwriter originally from Odense who rose to prominence in 2014.

Mø has been a favourite with the critics since the beginning of her career. She first gained attention following the release of the 'Bikini Daze' EP which featured early single 'Never Wanna Know' which went on to make the final cut of her album. The production of the songstresses' shimmering pop set the blogosphere alight and allowed her the opportunity to collaborate with the likes of Diplo. The EP was a moderate success, peaking at #11 on the US Heatseekers chart, more importantly it spread Mø's name throughout the States.

Her 2013 single 'Waste Of Time' was featured in an advertisement for Kopparberg at the end of the year and became something of a cult hit. She supported british electro duo Alunageorge on a tour of the UK and her notoriety grew substantially here too. The debut album 'No Mythologies To Follow' was released in February 2014 and was met with rave reviews from critics including The Guardian and The Independent. It peaked at #2 in her native Denmark and #58 in the UK. Zane Lowe chose the preceding single 'Don't Wanna Dance' as his Hottest Record In The World and it was featured on his hugely popular BBC Radio 1 show.

Her electro sound is inspired by the likes of Black Flag, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins and she states the Spice Girls got her interested in music. This mixture of electro and punk won her four Danish music awards and a European Border Breakers award. Recently Mø has contributed guest vocals to a hit single with Iggy Azeala, collaborated with Elliphant on an original EP and co-written a track for Major Lazer.
