- Hurricane by MS MR
1 review. Write a review for us »
MS MR are the latest edition to the Chess Club family. Can’t tell you much about them other than that they are from New York and were recently the Guardian’s band of the day or week or whatever accolade it is.
‘Hurricane’ is described by the band as ‘tumblr glitch pop’ which is an excellent example of a band defining themselves in completely retarded terms. They basically make modern grandiose laptop pop music like pretty much everyone else does nowadays. ‘Hurricane’ is an attempt at soulful electro-pop but it doesn’t really hit the spot. The female vocals aren’t up to much and the tune is tasteful enough but a little bland for my liking. It just doesn’t stick with me.
Flip it and we get a demo of ‘Bones’ which I assume will pop up again at some point. It’s a piano led power ballad that brings to mind Florence And The Machine due to its synth minimalism making way for grand, string led choruses with rolling kettle drum samples and the like. It’s a more cohesive, memorable tune than the A-side but it’s still a bit dodge.
