MØ: When I Was Young

by Andrew MacGregor


MØ: “When I Was Young” - 3 mins 17s

Those already pining for Halloween will appreciate this atmospheric MØ promo. To mark the Dane's latest EP, fans get three MØs for the price of one.

Inspired by Edvard Munch's 'The Dance of Life', MØ performs a dance-off between youth, maturity, and death - and the latter’s brought an ominous posse.

Caviar’s J.A.C.K. and choreographer Holly Blakey skilfully realise this grim fandango, while the track’s electro swing riff ensures we can sway in the face of death.

Against darkened skies, MØ channels her nostalgic playlist: “Whatever happened it would do me no wrong/As long as I could sing my favorite song”. Cool existential beats.
