I may be a little late to the hype party with this band but Ms Mr are really growing on me as of late! The New York duo are slightly mysterious and full of pop tracks but not that of the bubble gum kind, nope – this is emotive and deeply thought out lyrics. Comprising of London-born Lizzy and Seattle native Max, Ms Mr has similarities in the vocals that remind me of Florence and the Machine but I would not put them into the same category right away. The vocals are also very chilled out which creates a great mix with the very busy and intricate music parts underneath. Cinematic electronic pop is not far off if you want to try to imagine it but have a listen to Fantasy and also Hurricane to get an idea.
Their debut album is released in May 2013 so keep your eyes open for that!
