Snakehips + MØ - Don’t Leave

MØ’s time is coming, and it’s her terms that are going to set the ground rules for 2017.



Banger



Everyone is always looking for the next powerful pop superstar, the sort of act that’ll consistently create and push those boundaries at every turn - and no matter what they tip their hat to, it’ll sound distinctively real. There’s not many who can better MØ for that, a star who’s not necessarily waiting to be given that gold certified star - but is choosing her moment with the control and poise of a figure that’ll be around for many years to come. It’s what makes ‘Don’t Leave’ a particularly mesmerising banger, a modern slice of classic heartbreak that’s just as potent alone in your room as it is in the club.

Snakehips know how to deliver on those chilling realtime hooks, (there’s a reason why their last two big-time bangers have involved Zayn, Tinashe and Chance The Rapper) building skyscraper sized sheens of gripping electro edges that cover you in a blanket made of melting ice. ‘Don’t Leave’ is the exact soundtrack that comes from the bedrooms and living rooms around the world in that time between 2 and 5am in the morning - where a night out has the risk of ending in a life-altering moment. All with the twinkling lights of the city shining through the window.

If you didn’t know what a pop star should sound like in 2017, then you probably should whack a play on this. MØ’s time is coming, and it’s her terms that are going to set the ground rules for 2017. Jamie Muir
