New Video: MS MR - "Criminals"

MS MR has come a looooong way since I first saw them at Glasslands (RIP) years ago, but despite their rocket ride to mass attention and super shiny pop evolution, Lizzy's voice is still amazing, and Max Hershenow still makes dope beats. This duo is an example of how popularity sometimes comes to the ones who deserve it, and they don't always completely sell out. What's even more refreshing, is that they're completely aware of this:

Lizzy and Max say: "This video is a reflection on the internal conflict we’ve been facing over the past few months as our indie selves and their pop counterparts fight for creative control of MS MR. We find ourselves in an odd place as a band, having made the personal choice to explore where we might fit in in the shiny and seductive pop realm (especially given our ambitious goals), while truthfully still being two art kids locked away in our DIY studio, thriving off our own musical naiveté and thirst to push artistic boundaries. Are we on the right path? Have we come too far? Do we want a way out?"
