When we last posted about New York pop duo MS MR it was to feature the maximal, no-holds-barred bluster of “Hurricane” and its accompanying Tumblrific video. Now, the band has dialed things back (slightly) for “Dark Doo Wop,” a track that begins within the confines of its title genre before rising into an epic snare-led crescendo.
The result is a torch song that pumps as much adrenaline as it can muster, where lines like "This world is gonna burn, burn, burn" are tempered with the bleakly romantic: “As long as we're going down / baby, you should stick around.” It's an ending that, like the cigarette in the bloodied hand of the cover art, will leave you smoldering.
