ALBUM HOW DOES IT FEEL OUT NOW ON COLUMBIA RECORDS
Following the release of their explosive new album, How Does It Feel, New York- and LA-based duo MS MR (Lizzy Plapinger and Max Hershenow) release Criminals Remixes with reworks from Everything Everything HERE and Maize HERE. The remixes are available via iTunes HERE and Spotify HERE.
Earlier this month they unveiled their brand new video for the single “Criminals”which was directed by Charlotte Rutherford. The unashamedly lip-smack, glam video for the energetic, pop anthem “Criminals” is available to watch HERE.
MS MR on “Criminals” video: “This video is a reflection on the internal conflict we’ve been facing over the past few months as our indie selves and their pop counterparts fight for creative control of MS MR. We find ourselves in an odd place as a band, having made the personal choice to explore where we might fit in in the shiny and seductive pop realm (especially given our ambitious goals), while truthfully still being two art kids locked away in our DIY studio, thriving off our own musical naiveté and thirst to push artistic boundaries. Are we on the right path? Have we come too far? Do we want a way out?”
When it came to finding a director who could play on these contradictory feelings, we turned to the ultimate pop visionary, Charlotte Rutherford. She created a dark jewel-toned fantasyland that captures our unsettledness in all its forms: frustration and inspiration, confusion and excitement.”
Having spent the last two month touring North America, MS MR are currently on the European leg of their tour. Throughout the tour, MS MR will be donating a portion of every ticket sold to an inspiring organization, Third Wave Fund, a national fund that supports and strengthens youth-led gender justice activism.
