Published Apr 06, 2015MS MR shot to prominence in 2013 with their debut album Secondhand Rapture, and as they ready LP number two, they have shared a new single called "Painted."
It's a climactic electro-pop anthem with brisk rhythms, MIDI-sounding pianos and brassy, swelling synth tones. It threatens to explode into a full-blown pop banger, but it ultimately avoids catharsis in favour of jittery drama and slow comedowns.
The single will officially be released tomorrow (April 7) on Columbia. Stay tuned for more details about the duo's forthcoming album. Scroll past their tour schedule to hear "Painted."
