REVIEW: MS MR at Splendour in the Grass
When a band is on stage having the time of their lives, it’s natural that that energy would transfer across to the audience ten-fold, and that’s exactly what went down during MS MR’s set on day two of Splendour in the Grass.
Kicking off the performance with their track ‘Bones,’ the audience was enthralled from the very first beat - with lead singer Lizzy Plapinger gyrating and moving about the stage like this was the single best moment in her entire life.
Dress in a black cropped top emblazoned with the word ‘AWESOME,’ patterned hot pants, ripped black stockings, platform heels and a fluffy candy floss-inspired jacket, Lizzy was as stunning to look at as she was to listen to.
She was the centre of attention for the entire show, despite the fact that keyboardist and second half of MS MR, Max Hershenow, was dressed in a full silver suit for the first half of the set.
The duo launched into their newly released single, ‘Think of You,’ much to the delight of the crowd, while Lizzy swung the microphone over her head by the chord and simply oozed sex appeal from head to toe as she moved about the stage.
One of the best sing-a-long jams from the set was undoubtedly ‘Fantasy,’ for which Plapinger and Hershenow danced their hearts out together and the audience naturally followed suit.
“I can’t keep the smile off my face,” exclaimed the blonde bombshell before dedicating the next track, ‘Dark Doo Wop’ to the Byron Bay crowd.
After belting out another crowd-pleaser, MS MR gave the audience the track they’d been chomping at the bit for from the beginning, their very first single, ‘Hurricane.’
The energy of the duo on stage for the full hour-long set was nothing short of mesmerizing and utterly contagious, and completely got the party vibes into full swing. Every single person in that crowd was having a ball, no bones about it.
