New York duo MS MR — comprising singer Lizzy Plapinger and producer Max Hershenow — are set to release their debut LP Second Hand Rapture in May, following last year’s breakout EP Candy Bar Creep Show which earned them strong reviews and favourable comparisons to the likes of Florence + the Machine, Marina and the Diamonds and Poliça. Currently on tour in Australia as part of the Laneway Festival — although unfortunately skipping Auckland’s event — they dropped a video this week for their storming new single ‘Fantasy’. The weird clip features the duo trading glances in a diner, cheerleaders vomit glitter out in the parking lot, and Plapinger flanked by some staunch elderly ladies as she sings.
Fantasy is due May 14. Watch the video for ‘Fantasy’ below.
