We at KALTBLUT are totally in love with the concept, the EP and the sound. The voice of the lead singer ist just WOW WOW!
MS MR say: “It’s no secret we have something of a sweet spot for Tumblr. We like to think of it as a cultural collage and feel like it’s the perfect platform for what we want to present with this EP. It has been such an incredible source of inspiration and support, and so in return we wanted to first share the music with the very community that helped create its visual identity”
FIRST EVER EP RELEASED VIA TUMBLR! FULL RELEASE ON OCTOBER 22nd 2012
Tumblr break-out stars MS MR release their brand new four-track EP ‘CANDY BAR CREEP SHOW’ on October 22nd 2012. The New York duo is the first band ever to release an EP of all original material exclusively through Tumblr, with tracks released during September at msmrmusic.tumblr.com. The band has harnessed a unique following on the Tumblr community using gifs, images and quotes to embed and express themselves. The EP will then be fully available via iTunes and on limited edition 7” vinyl.
“Bones” - a track also been released in a Tumblr post along with artwork, a video, and an official remix. It is also possible to download the stems for each song for fans to make their own remix and submit them back to MS MR. The band will pick their favourites from those submitted and include them in an official album campaign next year. Remixers the band has worked with on the EP include Tom Vek and Twin Shadow amongst others.
A dark, brooding rush of modern electronic pop ‘Bones’ follows up MS MR’s first release ‘Hurricane’ earlier this year which caused something of a stir online, being named ‘Best New Track’ by Pitchfork, ‘Potential Superstars’ by The Guardian website and ‘Very Special’ by The Recommender. The Fly called it ‘the perfect hazy soundtrack to the wistful, perverse weirdness of the Tumblr generation’ and DIY described it as ‘a breathtaking love song’. The Village Voice who voted their live show one of the Top 6 shows of Summer in NYC.
One of the most visually compelling new artists around MS MR connect their highly adrenalized music and incredible vocals with visuals via video, artwork and online to create an other-worldly sensory experience.
