Exclusive Video Premiere: MXMS “Death Row”
It’s a great feeling when you hear or come across something that you know will hit with listeners/viewers. When films like Hereditary or The Witch were released, there was a collective vibe of “the game has changed,” and it was refreshing and unique.
As a longtime admirer of multi-instrumentalist/DJ Jeremy Dawson and his work with Shiny Toy Guns (We Are Pilots is still one of my favorite albums of all time), bringing this new video to you Dread readers makes me feel incredibly special. Dawson and vocalist Ariel Levitan, collectively known as MXMS (Me and My Shadow) have been releasing solid singles after singles and when we were turned onto their newest, “Death Row” we knew we had to share it with you horror fans.
Fittingly labeled as “Funeral Pop,” the duo knocks listeners in the face with enough bass and hook-filled melody to please the most diehard fans of electronic pop and with the accompanying video for the song, helps bridge a genre-heavy aesthetic with addictive choruses as well.
We’re happy to partner up with MXMS to bring you Dread Central readers the exclusive premiere of the “Death Row” music video. Feeling inspired by a mix of the obsession with high fashion with a very Texas Chain Saw-like vibe, “Death Row” sees Levitan and Dawson giving viewers an experience you won’t soon forget.
