In 2014, Lizzy Plapinger and Max Hershenow came back to New York City to start work on their sophomore album as MS MR. Only three years had passed since the first time they’d met up in secret, former college classmates with day jobs, spinning musical fragments into private worlds in front of Max’s laptop in Brooklyn.
They made their name on their early songs “Bones” and “Hurricane,” and since then, Lizzy and Max have amassed 30 million album streams, played festival main stages, become known and celebrated as an alt-pop duo with a wide magnetism, a contagious exuberance and a distinctly technicolor style. Far from the days when they would release their music anonymously on Tumblr, they came back to New York altered and focused—better lyricists, vocalists, producers and performers.They were after the complicated alchemy of subversion and directness that they saw defining the modern pop act;they were no longer aiming for serendipity but for control.
