MS MR - "Do I Wanna Know?" (live Arctic Monkeys cover)


Brooklyn's fine synth-pop duo MS MR took to the BBC Live Lounge Late this week to perform a few songs, and I guess they also figured when in London, they should do as Londoners do - their set included a cover of the Arctic Monkeys' "Do I Wanna Know." Continuing their streak of being totally awesome at pretty surprising covers (remember that version of LCD Soundsystem's "Dance Yrself Clean" they did for Triple J?), the band, including a green-haired Lizzy Plapinger, lay it down in a perfect, softly menacing way. It just serves as further proof that these guys are doing big things, and that Plapinger's got some of the best stage presence in the game. Check it out.
