MS MR is coming up '80s on new track 'Painted'

Posted on

Lizzy Plapinger and Max Hershenow, who produce music as MS MR (she as the vocalist, he as the producer), dropped the lead single off their forthcoming sophomore album Monday morning and gone is the spacey soul-pop of “Hurricaine.” Instead, “Painted” is a bubbling, layered, electric guitar-tinged pop effort that has Plapinger asking repeatedly, “What did you think would happen?”

Well, we aren’t quite sure what we expected of the follow-up to 2013’s Secondhand Rapture, but the duo never fails to make a splash.
