Interview: MS MR – Laneway Festival 2013 Interviews
New York duo MS MR have truly captivated ears the world over. Not just for the genre-hopping sensibilities or for their forward thinking use of social media but also because of just how far they’ve come in a very, very short space of time.
The pair are in town for their very first time ever performing as part of the Laneway Festival 2013. As they discuss with the Music Feeds team, MS MR (pronounced Ms. Mister) seem to be pretty taken by out little part of the world. They very aptly compare Laneway to summer camp for bands and even share some inside goss with us about who’s a good vibe back stage at the festival.
Despite having mastered the art of Tumblr, the two were still shocked by how much love was coming at them from Australia. Playing infront of thousands of people on the other side of the planet. Tumblr has other uses, as they have discovered – distribution. Their latest EP Candy Bar Creep Show was realsed via the blogging site and found its footing instantly.
With their debut full-length EP set for release May 14th, MS MR will be taking a different road, aiming to have something physical to be able to hold and admire their hard work.
They were cheeky enough to drop a hint as to when they will be back in town, Splendour 2013, anybody?
