iTunes Review

A seductively erotic charge courses through Secondhand Rapture, the debut album of New York twosome MS MR. Drawing upon classic pop, retro soul and trip-hop elements, the duo crafts a sound that’s meticulously constructed without concealing the volatile emotions coursing beneath its surfaces. Singer Lizzy Plapinger combines Adele’s diva authority with Florence Welch’s artful flair as she tears into love’s temptations and treacheries. The wounded desire that fuels her performances in “Hurricane,” “Think of You,” “No Trace” and similar tracks are lent dramatic heft by producer Max Hershenow’s atmospheric use of cavernous vocal echo and rumbling tympani drums. MS MR stretch out further with clap-along island grooves (“Salty Sweet”), cool lounge jazz (“Dark Doo Wop”) and gliding, gothic-tinged balladry (“Ash Tree Lane”). The slow jam soulfulness of “Fantasy” finds the duo simultaneously mellow and menacing. For all the lyric venom and sonic lushness found here, there’s a vulnerability to the music’s core that pours forth in revelatory moments like the smoldering album closer “This Isn’t Control.”

SO SO SO GOOD

This is honestly one of the best albums I have ever heard. It's very dark yet hopeful at the same time. What surprises me the most is that this is a completely new and original sound, which makes it completely stand out. Every track is wonderful and adds to the album in it's own special way.

My personal favorites are: Bones, Ash Tree Lane, Fantasy, Dark Doo Wop, Head is not a Home, and No Trace.
However they are all stunning.

Keep up the good work MS MR!

Bones!

I have put this song on repeat for hours. I love the whole album but this song is my absolute favorite.

Perfection 

Every song is absolutely perfect. They are my new favorite artist right now.

Formed: New York, NY

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '10s

Shadowy New York-based chillwave duo MS MR first caught the public's attention with their infectious 2012 single "Hurricane," a dark yet sinfully melodic heartbreak anthem that blended the iciness of Phantogram and Bat for Lashes with the commercial grandeur of Adele and Florence + the Machine. Initially steeped in anonymity, the pair were revealed to be vocalist Lizzy Plapinger (also co-founder of the pop imprint Neon Gold) and producer Max Hershenow. The duo inked a deal with Sony not long after...
