Denmark’s MØ continues to impress, proving exactly why she’s an artist to watch for in 2013. While the pop music on the radio continues to lumber down the obvious, wide open paths that have been traveled so many times before, there is far more unexplored territory being discovered in indie pop—especially in the indie pop coming from Scandinavia. MØ’s music isn’t hard to get into, but it’s full of subtle touches that prevent songs like “Glass” from getting boring after repeat listening.
Of the “Glass” visuals, the singer told Fader:
“The video is inspired by the lyrics to ‘Glass,’ which tries to visualize the restlessness of a young person’s mind. It’s a boredom, an insatiability and anxiety. Fear of getting old, fear of missing things and fear to love. The video is shot in small Danish town called Hirtshals, which represents the provincial society well. I myself grew up in a small town, and know the feeling of restlessness and wanderlust. It reflects on a young girl’s burning desire to do something, but she has no idea what, how or where to begin. In the end it is always easier just to do nothing and wait for the dawning of a new day.”
