Today (8 April 2013), the new video for the song 'Hurricane' by New York-based duo MS MR (Lizzy Plapinger and Max Hershenow) premiered on VEVO. The music video with surreal scenes (which awaken associations with Salvador Dali's dreamy world, Antonin Artaud's theatre of cruelty) is filmed by writer, director, photographer Luke Gilford in Southern California. The 'Hurricane' video is described as "bewitching glimpse into otherworldly experiences of suburban youth" - some of these experiences happen in a wigs salon (video below).
