Indeed there’s both pop finesse and jagged basslines made apparent from Mo so far, giving credence to initial ‘pop-heavy R&B’ genre descriptions. Mo now releases his debut EP ‘Undercover’, featuring both singles and previously unreleased tracks ‘Like You Love Me’ and ‘Some Things Never Change’.
As Mo’s captivating vocal and tone continues to strike bold comparisons to the playful, concrete abilities of Justin Timberlake or MNEK, this debut body of work underlines the depth of Mo’s writing abilities, wandering further into sophisticated, R&B-flecked pop. Further doses of his snappy, infectious sound make welcome additions to his repertoire so far and points to the continuing establishment of an artist making a notable name for himself amongst the UK and European tastemakers.
Mo has already garnered Top 10, platinum and gold releases as a songwriter in ten different countries. Now coming through with his debut solo material, Mo proves he’s equally adept to making hits himself. Speaking on the EP, Mo states: “I had so much fun making this EP because there were really no rules, no brief, no deadline – it was just pure vibes without overthinking it too much. It’s a snapshot of where I’m at right now, still sort of undercover but now also stepping out on my own.”
