Wait! Come back!
It appears it’s time for another hidden musical duo who’d prefer to be obfuscated from view for now. Ms Mr may be a Brooklyn-based duo but I’m betting there’s a significant British connection here if the voice is anything to go by – a dab from each of the voice springs of Florence Welch, La Roux and Sophie Ellis Bextor.
Musically speaking, the duo’s first release is the free downloadable Ghost City USA 4-track EP and it takes in Florence-esque pop elegance with big piano chords. It’s a very promising start. The duo won’t formally reveal themselves til later in the year when performing live shows.
Big thanks to Mike at The Recommender for alerting me to their presence with this post.
