Critically acclaimed music duo, MS MR (Lizzy Plapinger and Max Hershenow) release their highly anticipated forthcoming album, ‘How Does It Feel,’ which features the explosive lead single “Painted!”
Featuring 12 brand new ecstatic, high-octane songs, ‘How Does It Feel’ finds MS MR returning to the visceral, bare-bones intimacy that launched the band just three years ago.
Their 2013 debut ‘Secondhand Rapture’ had been recorded for a few hundred dollars in spare rooms throughout Brooklyn. For ‘How Does It Feel,’ Lizzy and Max returned to their old stomping grounds in late 2014, specifically the neighbourhood of Bushwick, where they rented a small room to hammer out new material.
For the first time, the duo teamed up with fellow musicians to co-write new songs — Tove Lo for the album's “Pieces” and MNDR for “Tripolar.” MS MR's drummer Zach Nicita also co-wrote and co-produced a handful of new tracks.
‘How Does It Feel’ was recorded in studios in New York and Los Angeles, including Electric Lady Studios, White Bronco Studios and the band's own Creep City Studios. The band once again collaborated with multi-Grammy award winner Tom Elmhirst (Adele, Amy Winehouse, Arcade Fire, Beck) to mix the album at Electric Lady Studios.
