The forthcoming debut from Danish electro-pop artist MØ, entitled No Mythologies to Follow, is as much an album as it is a diary, packed with all the random and chaotic emotional occurrences one might experience day-to-day. There’s moments of bubbliness and pure celebration (“Glass”, “XXX 88”), displays of outright primal intensity and sex appeal (“Pilgrim”, “Waste of Time”), and a peak behind the curtain with instances of heartfelt reflection (“Never Wanna Know”).
The latest from the 12-track effort, “Don’t Wanna Dance”, is definitely in that latter category. As she did with “Never Wanna Know”, MØ once again heavily strips her sound, eschewing disco vibes and undulating synths for the slightly updated groove of some jangly ’60s girl-group ballad. Inspired by equal parts soul and R&B, her vocals sound like a dancehall version of Nancy Sinatra, radiating pristine waves of cheerfulness as she confesses her love for a boy with utter simplicity and just a hint of kitsch. Listen in below.
No Mythologies to Follow is due out February 24th via Chess Club/RCA Victor.
