M.O

M.O are a new girl group on the block who are unafraid to subvert the status quo. They bring a gritty edge to their honed pop sound, twisting that iconic nineties R&B template into new shapes. All of the girls have written songs for previous pop incarnations – and it shows. Unafraid to wear their influences on their sleeves, the trio draw on TLC, Destiny’s Child, All Saints, nineties R&B and reggae for inspiration for their own M.O sound.

M.O are a new girl group on the block who are unafraid to subvert the status quo. They bring a gritty edge to their honed pop sound, twisting that iconic nineties R&B template into new shapes.

Frankee, Nadine and Annie have been together little over two years but are already turning heads with well received tracks Wait Your Turn, Ain’t Got Time and Hot. All three have won them support from 1Xtra, Rinse FM and SBTV.

Meanwhile their latest offering On Ya is doing the rounds on blogs both sides of the Atlantic and looks set to take them further into the mainstream. Another amalgamation of well crafted pop, up-to-the-minute production and old school R&B, it’s a classy number that showcases fresh new talent on the rise.

All of the girls have written songs for previous pop incarnations - with Frankee having been one half of Xenomania’s Mini Viva – and it shows.

Unafraid to wear their influences on their sleeves, they also write their own M.O material, drawing on TLC, Destiny’s Child, All Saints, nineties R&B and reggae for inspiration.

Over the past year they’ve worked with Lady Leshurr, Scottish producer Show n Prove, Black Butter’s Woz, Gorgon City and Hostage, with more releases planned for early 2014.

Expect to hear a lot more from this bunch in the new year...
