New York-based duo MS MR will be gracing Melbourne and Sydney with their dreamy pop sound in July, playing sideshows in Sydney and Melbourne while they’re in town for Splendour In The Grass 2013.
The pair, vocalist Lizzy Plapinger and producer Max Hershenow, have drummed up a ton of hype with their singles Hurricane, Bones and Fantasy as well as their EP Candy Bar Creep Show. Their complex pop sound has been likened to artists such as Florence And The Machine and Lana Del Rey, with lots of layers and plenty of synth. They’re also known for their unconventional methods of unleashing their tunes to the world, having slowly revealed the tracks from their debut EP via Tumblr.
MS MR’s debut album, Secondhand Rapture, is scheduled for local release this Friday, 10th May. Sideshow tickets go on sale 9:00am AEST on Monday, 13th May via Secret Sounds.
