MS MR: RELEASE ‘THINK OF YOU’ VIDEO UK TOUR AND FESTIVALS IN JULY/AUGUST

RELEASE ‘THINK OF YOU’ VIDEO OUT AUGUST 12TH

 

 

DEBUT ALBUM: ‘SECONDHAND RAPTURE’ OUT NOW

 

‘Secondhand Rapture revolves around deep, thunderous rumblings, celestial twinkling, foggy shrouds, and the sweet clarity of a pastel dawn’ – Pitchfork

‘Mixing Florence-style belting goth pop with reverberating, poliça-esque sounds, Lizzy and Max have made a big, baleful and agreeably weird indie-pop record’Metro

 

Following on from their critically acclaimed debut album ‘Secondhand Rapture,’ Noir-Pop New Yorkers MS MR are set to release their brand new single ‘Think of You’ on August 12th. Watch the video here –

 

 

A summer anthem in waiting, ‘Think Of You’ follows on from the heavily championed singles ‘Fantasy’ and ‘Hurricane’, both of which were play listed at Radio 1 and firmly lodged at the top of the HypeM charts.  The single was written and produced by the two-piece, which comprises of London-born Lizzy and Idaho native Max, with additional production and mixing by Tom Elmhirst (Back To Black, 21).  A deliciously bittersweet ode to a lost and emotionally abusive relationship, ‘Think of You’ is yet another MS MR trademark mix of an ecstatic pop hook set against deeply dark lyrics that continue to win over tastemakers. MS MR recently made their network television debut stateside on The David Letterman show delivering a powerful performance of ‘Hurricane’, watch their performance here –

 

The band have been widely recognised for their use of self-created visuals to work alongside their music via tumblr, photography and video.  Their music has been used by a diverse range of other media from the trailer for the new series of ‘Game of Thrones’ (over 20 million views so far) to key catwalks across the globe. Meanwhile their acclaimed live show has seen the band perform around the world at their own headline shows and festival dates including their recent electric set at Glastonbury, with Prince Harry in attendance. Their forthcoming tour includes a headline show at London’s Electric Ballroom which sold out two months beforehand. The duo recently came in at an impressive 13 of the Top 20 Most Blog Artists in the World so Far in 2013.  All data compiled from HypeM.
