BBC Radio One’s Live Lounge never fails to deliver awesome covers. Case in point? NYC synth-pop duo MS MR‘s recent take on Arctic Monkeys‘ “Do I Wanna Know.”

Already a song that is dark in tone, MS MR’s take on the chugging indie rock hit plays up the ache  of Alex Turner’s lyrics with Lizzy Plapinger’s undeniably dark pop vocals. Add a creeping piano line and you have a pretty little wicked take on an already fantastic song.

Check out more MS MR on the duo’s official website.
