Ms Mr – ‘Hurricane’
Hello dark sultry synth pop of the highest order it is nice to see you again.
There isn’t a lot currently known about Ms Mr, aside from this frankly well shoddy press shot that someone undoubtedly got paid a grand for DESPITE THEIR HEADS BEING CUT OFF. I mean, what?
Fortunately this is one of those tracks that manages to be strangely euphoric while having its roots firmly in the gloom. It feels like a sort of strange mash-up of Sugababes’ ‘Stronger’ and Husband’s ‘Love Song’, if you can imagine such a thing. Well you don’t need to because it is here. And it is good.
Also excellent is the continuation of gender-oriented descriptor thingies as band names. See also: She & Him, which I’m guessing might have inspired this one a bit, being practically the same?!
