On The Radar: MØ’s Bikini Daze EP

After what feels like many months of thumb-twidling and obsessive website-checking, its finally happened – our favorite Danish pop siren du jour  aka Karen Marie Ørsted has dropped her much anticipated debut EP – entitled “Bikini Daze” via Chess Club / RCA Victor, and we’re so into it.

There are lots of reasons to love MØ: she’s got her fierce scandi-quirk look locked down, she’s really great at whipping her ponytail, etc., but most importantly, she crafts incredibly considered tunes, defined by interlocking layered synths, heartfelt lyrics and some serious swagger.

Her four-track Bikini Daze EP will feature three new songs alongside her recently released pop-drenched single “XXX 88” featuring Diplo, with its color-ridden accompanying video. She’s certainly on our radar, and we cant wait to hear (and see) more!
