MØ - Nights With You

Danish singer-songwriter MØ is well on her way to releasing her sophomore album and if her recent releases are anything to go by we’re in for a treat. ‘Nights With You’ is the most recent single she’s debuted from the new album; she wrote the track alongside some of the top producers and songwriters in the world including; Ryan Tedder, SOPHIE, Benny Blanco and Cashmere Cat.

MØ wrote the song for her longtime best friend and it’s about their friendship and love for each other. In an RCA Records press release she said, “The lyrics are about telling your soulmate to let go of all the worries...Sometimes all you need is someone who knows you well to just demand of you to stop worrying, turn off your phone, go out, get smashed and forget about life as we know it. If only just for a while.” Her lyrics are refreshingly honest and evokes a sense of being young and carefree.

The track itself is a bit different for her; while still being heavily infused with electropop it’s far more mid-tempo and a little bit sultry.

 

Tove Stryke - Say My Name

If you live in Sweden you more than likely know exactly who Tove Stryke is; her debut album ‘Tove Stryke’ went platinum in her native country and she’s one of the biggest artists there.

You might have heard some of her songs though, ‘Borderline’, ‘Number One’ and ‘Ego’ are all taken from her second album ‘Kiddo’. They’re the kind of songs you’ve heard before but not quite sure where, nevertheless she’s easing her way into a bigger audience.

‘Say My Name’ is a confident, ready for summer track; the production is nice and simple and the chorus is addictingly catchy.

 

Miley Cyrus - Malibu

This is completely different for Cyrus. It’s not offensive, it’s not overproduced, it’s normal and mature.

Circa 2013 she cut her hair off and we no longer had Hannah Montana, we had ‘Bangerz’, which let’s be frank was weird and then 2015 comes along and she gives us ‘Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz’. Never heard of it? Yeah, neither have I. No one can deny that she successfully shook off her Disney image whilst simultaneously shocking the world.

With ‘Malibu’ though she’s gone straight back to her country roots and it’s possible that’s a good thing, she had a few good ones off ‘Bangerz’ but nothing that really stuck out.

Not sure that ‘Malibu’ is going to be as iconic as ‘The Climb’ or ‘Party In The U.S.A’ but at least she’s growing up.
