Her interest developed in punk music and anti-fascist movements when she was a teenager.

In 2006, the singer released a side project titled The Edmunds. It included such tracks as “Garbage King” and “Polly Get Your Gun”.

She then began creating a cappella pop songs and collaborating with producer Ronni Vindahl in 2012 and on 14 January 2013, she released her debut single, “Glass”. On 26 October 2017, MØ released her second extended play, titled When I Was Young, as a surprise.
