MS MR, “Hurricane”
If you feel like you’re having déja vu, you’re not. New York duo MS MR already released a video for “Hurricane,” the first single from their debut EP Candy Bar Creep Show last year. But since then, they’ve toured with Marina and the Diamonds and GROUPLOVE, and their haunting single “Bones” was featured in the trailer for the new season of HBO’s Game of Thrones. With buzz steadily building around their upcoming album, Secondhand Rapture, due in May, it seems vocalist Lizzy Plapinger and producer Max Hershenow decided “Hurricane” needed a more polished treatment. The new clip is more narrative driven than the original video collage, but no less bizarre. Think: Mutant High after school special, with a sexy, neo-trip-hop soundtrack.
