It's MØ vs MØ vs death itself in this dreamlike video inspired by Edvard Munch painting The Dance Of Life.
MØ: “I'm so happy to present this video because it feels very true to the song and to who I am. It was inspired by a painting called ‘The Dance Of Life’ by one of my favorite artists, Edvard Munch. It’s an illustration of three women—one in white, one in red and one in black—and tells a story about three stages of human life: youth, maturity, and old age. I was always drawn to this image as a kid due to its simple symbolism and emotion and have been dying to do a video that could reflect on it. Since ‘When I Was Young’ is all about nostalgia and reflecting on life—especially the past, but also the now and the future—it just seemed like the perfect time to do it." [via YouTube]
MØ — or, if you don't feel like fucking with optionaltaccentwhatever on your keypad, you can call her MoMoMoYouth, or Maiden (which is what MØ translates to in Danish) or Karen Marie Ørsted — dreams of living in a trap star fantasy. She pines over a Diplo magazine cover (nice abs!), imagines waving a XXX flag with her posse on the beach, and being on a spirit quest in the desert.
