ELECTRO-FOLK ARTIST MOGLI IS A MODERN DAY RENAISSANCE WOMAN
Berlin-born artist Mogli lends far more than just breezy vocals to her new EP, Patience. She writes, performs, produces, and art directs all of her own music, in addition to penning a bestselling book, running her own sustainable fashion line and starring in the Netflix documentary, Expedition Happiness.
And she’s not tired yet.
With a background as a child opera singer, Mogli represents the hustle-or-die mentality of her generation, but I get the sense that dipping her hands in multiple creative pots is innate for her. She’s not trying to take over the world, she’s just exploring different outlets with instinctive, curious energy.
Her brand new EP follows her first two studio albums, Bird (2015), and Wanderer (2017), and is a peak into the artists’ psyche following a cross-country road trip with an ex-lover. The five-track collection offers delicate synth, drowsy melodies, and soul-piercing lyrics.
I spoke with Mogli about the process of creating the EP, as well as her musical influences and other creative pursuits.
