New York electro-pop duo and CMJ 2012 band MS MR has announced an unconventional release plan for its debut EP, Candy Bar Creep Show, officially out September 18 via Creep City. Instead of unveiling all the tracks at once, the group is slowly teasing them out week by week via its Tumblr every Monday along with artwork, a video and an official remix.
The first available track, “Bones,” is a piano-driven doom-soaked slice of goth-pop that combines Bat For Lashes’ sense of mystery with an eerie dose of creeping dread. “Dark twisted fantasy turned to reality/Kissing death and losing my breath,” sings the MS half of the pair. A Kanye reference perhaps? Click here to check out the song and figure it out for yourself.
The duo will also be hitting the road as an opening act for Grouplove starting in October. Check out those dates below.
