Saying Mogli has been busy the past few years would be a massive understatement. At just 25, the German artist has already co-directed a Netflix travel documentary, released an accompanying album, and designed a line of sustainable clothing, among other personal projects. Her first LP, Wanderer, is an impressive foray into indie bedroom pop, with Mogli’s delicate and controlled vocals floating over understated guitars and pianos. Filled with natural imagery and personal reflections, Wanderer introduced Mogli as a deeply introspective, yet charming newcomer in the self-made, singer-songwriter realm.
Her latest EP, Patience, retains the self-reflective personality of her previous releases, but with more electronic elements—a la artists like Lorde and Billie Eilish. A journey into heartbreak and healing, Patience is equal parts vulnerable and elegant. Candidly regretful lyrics (“In another life/I let you in”) meet pulsating beats, resulting in tracks that are as perfect for late night drives with friends as they are for post-breakup cries.
Currently on her The Mirrors Tour, Mogli filled us in on the acts she’s been dying to see live. Check out her picks below, and be sure to catch her on tour in the US this spring!
I have been a fan since day 1 and have never seen him live. His voice gives me the chills, so it's about time.
I've seen Daughter (the main project of Elena Tonra) before, the main project of Elena Tonre, and she is mesmerizing live. The music she is writing under her new moniker, Ex:re, is so much more vulnerable and moves me deeply, so I bet the concert would be crazy good.
I love the honesty and humor in her songwriting, so would love to catch a show to hear some of her stories.
I'm a massive fan of her work and never had the chance to see her live. Would love to go with one of my best friends Romy and shout along to all the songs.
This is the music I listen to when I'm not in a good place, cause its energy is numbing but not too much––it still moves me. I would love to dance the night away with my pack (how I call the friends that feel like family) cause we all have mental health issues, and this is kind of like a healthy escape from life.
