I’ve been waiting for this moment for a long time, now… MS MR have been one of my favourite rising stars since they released their first single ‘Hurricane’, roughly a year ago. I’ve seen them live twice and begged Lizzy to hurry up with that album that I was so anxious to get my hands on. And now that it’s finally coming out, in just a few days, I get more than I asked for: ‘Secondhand Rapture’ streaming in full, for free, before release date. Go listen to it! Go go go! (via Hype Machine!)
“Hurricane” by NYC band MS MR, the first single off of their upcoming debut release Secondhand Rapture out May 14th on Columbia Records. Filmed in Southern California by writer / director Luke Gilford, the video is a bewitching glimpse into otherworldly experiences of suburban youth.
Up next, we’ll have a post from another new contributor, Lior Phillips from South Africa. Since the end of January, Lior and I have been trading links to new music. Just about everything she sent me, I became a fan of (and I probably posted a lot of it). When I began my search for new contributors, It just made sense to reach out.
“Fantasy” by MS MR, from the album Second Hand Rapture (Out May 14th On Columbia Records). Shot on location in Jamaica, Queens by director Austin Peters, the video for “Fantasy” stays true to the main themes and questions behind the track: things we imagine or think we understand are not as they appear. This video presents a world filled with fantasies gone wrong where the mundane, the surreal and the supernatural are all intertwined and what is real becomes a matter of perspective.
New York’s duo MS MR is excited to unveil their 4-track debut EP, Candy Bar Creep Show, starting today exclusively via their Tumblr msmrmusic.tumblr.com. Every Monday for the next four weeks, a new track will be revealed along with artwork, a video, and an official remix. The band will also be posting the stems for each song, and invite people to get involved by making their own remixes and submitting them back to MS MR. The band will pick their favorites and include them in the official album campaign next year. The Candy Bar Creep Show EP will be for sale on 9/18, and available for iTunes pre-order now HERE.
Head to tumblr to hear the first track, “Bones”.
