Hi yo, I just got from Danish Singer Mø's concert last week in Tel Aviv and what kinda party that was? well to tell you the truth, a decent concert is for me like a trip abroad. Are you feeling me?During my work in Israeli press I interviewed and reviewed many artists coming to Israel and out of to name a few: Henry Rollins, Morissey, Hurts, Garbage (UK), Robyn (BE), Keisha to The Darkness, good stuff only.
Myself and my friend Yarden, two Denmark obsessed gals are going to Roskilde festival this summer. We are longing for it obvs, so it was natural for me to drag her to this adventure: Møing with no tkts: 90th minute syndrom. We took cab and beers, and rode downtown to scene of crime: Barby club. The time was 9:20 and the rumor was that Mø will up @ 9:30.
Outside: a few wandering danes, many cool Israelis, stylish cool gals anywhere accompanied by their gay friends/males friends.
Getting my tkt wasn't easy but I made, it though it was a sold out concert.
Inside, the venue looked so different, the stage was looking like a persian prince was going to appear and not a Danish princess, lit with warm colors that looked like a few burning bushes were spread around and DJ spinning dope beats (Yarin Lidor). The venue was filled but I managed to push a bit...well, OK I am a strong girl so found myself on the 1st raw?! ok yuppie.
Not long after Singer Mø went on sporting white disco pants,white Nike crop top and her famous forehead revealing up-do. The songs came one by one "Waste of Time", "Walk This Way" and "Slow Love". The show was very energetic and Mø is graceful and petite. Her stage presence isn't rocknroll but thats where it sits as she comes across as a cute human, nothing sexy here yet she is moving her hips and anything else onstage. She is very A-sexual and I love that.
Her onstage persona reminds of David Bowie meets Britney Spears with 90's updo and belly bottom shirt.
All in all she is a very talented artist as she manages to combine the impossible R'N'B, live rock and electro all in such an intelligent songwriting frame. Onstage with a keyboard/beats programer, live drummer and bass player, all good looking espcially the laid back drummer who looks like Kurt Cobain's incarnation and a very blonde human, the band impressed me by their professionally: at some point they sounded like a band of working musicians who hired Mø as a singer for the gig. Did you hear that too? I had to leave in the middle of the concert as I had to go to work...but still I felt glad I came. See you in summer Mø and if not personally than I'll see you Copenhagen xxx
