MS MR are set to release their sophomore album, How Does it Feel, on July 17th. They recently released the music video for the first single off the album, “Painted” and it rocks.
The video is a collaboration between the band and director Tabitha Denholm (Florence and the Machine, Haim, Jessie J). The idea for the video was inspired by famed director, Stanley Kubrick as well as the 1970s documentary The Secret Life of Plants. Love the song and the groovy, psychedelic video. For something a little smoother, their second single, “Wrong Victory” takes it down a notch. Check it out here.
MS MR makes an impact with their first single, “Hurricane” which is available for download on soundcloud. They will release the 7” single in July via IAMSOUND Records Pitchfork recently premiered the music video for it (above) and it has been compared to Lana Del Rey’s “Video Games” video (however, in my opinion it’s much better). They will be going on tour with Marina & The Diamonds this July and August throughout the US, tour dates below. With a sound of pop mixed with some soul MS MR has a sound all their own.
