About MS MR
They've been labeled as the 'mysterious' New York City-based duo with the "Hurricane"-force debut. But Lizzy Plapinger and Max Hershenow, aka MS MR, are more than just hype.
Yes, their 2012 hit "Hurricane" was nothing short of an alt-pop masterpiece. Yes, it's unofficial video garnered millions of hits on YouTube. And yes, they were awarded 'Best New Track' on Pitchfork. But the pair showed it was more than a one-hit wonder when they used their Tumblr page to debut their EP, the critically acclaimed "Candy Bar Creep Show." It also included the tracks "Bones," "Dark Doo Wop," and "Ash Tree Lane" when it bowed in the fall of 2012, much to the delight of both the mainstream and underground press.
Before long, MS MR could be heard just about everywhere. The song "Bones" was included on the trailer for the television series "Game of Thrones," and "Hurricane" served as official soundtrack during Fashion Week. With all the exposure it sure didn't take them long to find a home on Columbia Records for the release of their debut album, "Secondhand Rapture." They even worked with Tom Elmhirst (Adele, Amy Winehouse) on the mix and overall production, with the finished product showcasing MS MR's love for everything from '80s to new wave to country.
You might've heard that MS MR is all different genres, all different time periods. It's true. Their sound has been compared to Florence and the Machine, Kavinsky, Lana Del Rey and more. Fans got a taste when MS MR toured extensively in 2013, and they're currently back on stage as part of 30 Days in LA. Get your MS MR tickets now!
