MS MR are London-born Lizzy and Idaho native Max. The band have come to attention with a unique and thrilling mix of limited edition EP’s, arresting videos, gifs and still imagery, some superlative live shows in the US and Europe and tumblr where the band have quickly become stars within their community using gifs, images and quotes to embed and express themselves.
The Village Voice voted their live show one of the Top 6 shows of Summer in NYC, meanwhile Tom Ford personally chose ‘Hurricane’ for his Spring Summer presentations in September Fashion Week and Jay-Z blogged the video on his Life & Times site with the attendant words ‘empire state of mind’
