MS MR

January 24, 2017

I chose to write an article about MS MR because it is my favorite band of all time ! I actually first discovered them thanks to Game of Thrones‘s season 3 trailer which used one of MS MR‘s best songs called ”bones”.

MS MR (pronounced Miss Mister) is an Indie pop, alternative rock, dream pop and dark wave duo composed of lead singer Lizzie Plapinger and pianist and musician Max Hershenow. The duo is almost always accompanied by drummer Zach Nicita and guitarist David Lizmi, who have become very close to them, so they could be considered as members of the band.

Lizzy and Max met at Vassar college in New York, a liberal art college. They know each other from  a class they had together but first spoke to each other thanks to their common friends. Max and Lizzy then discovered they had a lot in common and especially their love for music and art and their desire to create their own music.

The two students continued their studies but started writing together and composing new melodies leading to the birth of the duo MS MR. Lizzy and Max then quickly became best friends.

In parallel to that, Lizzy is the co-owner of an important record label, with her other best friend Derek, called Neon Gold Records. Neon Gold Records helped some artists reveal themselves to the large public, such as Ellie Goulding , Gotye or even Tove Lo.

What I love about MS MR is their wide range of kinds of songs. Indeed, they can make sad or calm songs as they can make joyful or more energetic songs.  Moreover, the melodies of their songs are always beautiful; they always make me feel strong emotions and they’re always sophisticated and well-wrought. The lyrics are also something  I like about MS MR‘s songs because they’re written for sensitive people as they often talk about love, relationships with people, weaknesses, strengths…

Furthermore, the duo’s fashion style is quite original and unique, which I love about them ! Indeed, both Lizzy and Max dress differently from other artists I’ve seen and know as they don’t have fashion counselors who  advise them what to wear and as they even make their own clothes. Indeed, they don’t care about other people’s opinion and judgment and just wear whatever they like.

To conclude, I can say that MS MR is, in my opinion, an excellent band for their music of course, but also for their live performances that are always very dynamic and energetic. Indeed, if you ever go to a MS MR concert you will for sure feel that the band and especially Max and Lizzy love doing what they do and want the crowd to have as much fun as they’re having, which, to me,  is what makes concerts so great.  Plus, the interaction between the band and the fans is always what I look forward to in a concert and MS MR definitely makes an effort to make us feel like we’re close to them and that we’re going to have an awesome night together !
