Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Fever to Tell (Interscope)
MØ has Yeah Yeah Yeahs Fever: Danish singer-songwriter told us about her love for a Yeah Yeah Yeahs classic.


MØ: One of my favourite albums, and possibly my most listened to, is the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s Fever To Tell. I picked it up at the local music library when I was a teenager because I thought the cover looked cool, and I knew that the band had a female singer. I was always looking for new women in music – somewhere in between mainstream and alternative – to idolize. I fell in love not just with Karen O’s vocal, energy and way of being a performer, but also Nick Zinner’s guitars and the full spectrum of production and songwriting. There was raw punk energy mixed with tender emotion, hooks, fresh ideas – all of it cut to the core.
My two favourite songs on the album (and songs I reference often) are “Pin” and “No No No”. I think it’s because these both exude a beautiful mix of melancholy and energy, which warms my little Scandinavian heart.
MØ has Yeah Yeah Yeahs Fever: MØ’s new album Motordrome is out now. Her immersive performance “The Motordrome Experience” is airing on Moment House on Wednesday March 2 here.
