With a powerful pop sound and back to basics music video, Mori's new track rocks hard! Check out the dope video here.
"Do You Wanna Hurt Me," the first track off MORI's Better For You EP, has been described as "a thumping call to arms for a relationship on the brink of collapse, as relatable as it is danceable."
The video is a stripped-down, back to basics performance of the track featuring lead singer Mori Einsidler performing with her band, playing a badass white Gibson SG, while polychromatic lights strobe in the background. It is both rare and refreshing to see a music video that really emphasizes performance over spectacle in 2016, and that's exactly what this video does.

MORI delivers punchy, hook-laden alternative rock/pop you can (and should) scream along to in the car. Fronted by lead singer, songwriter & guitarist Mori Einsidler, the band took shape in the winter of 2014 with the addition of Jake Goldin on lead guitar, Adam Downer on bass and vocals, and Stephen Ranellone on drums. MORI crafts songs that ache and burst, recalling the ear candy of indie-pop duo Tegan & Sara packed with the voltage of alt-rock overlords Paramore and Brand New.
This year has been a breakout one for MORI, with solo and full band tours across the Northeast, a stint at Brooklyn's Northside Festival, the release of the Better For You EP in March, and sold out shows in NYC. The band has been in the studio with co-producer Jon Markson (Such Gold), and fans can expect more new music in the coming months.
Protest music aside, there is a slew of good underground music out today
An invigorating slew of protest music hit the shelves today.
Detroit-based emcee Tee Grizzley collaborated with Queen Naija and the Detroit Youth Choir to craft a melodic ballad that attempts to open up a dialogue with police. Meanwhile, alt-Jazz pioneer Terrace Martin took a different approach in his collaboration with Denzel Curry, Daylyt, G Perico, and Kamasi Washington, with "Pigs Feet" being more of an angry f*ck you than an attempt at communication.
After a week of silence, Kanye's actions speak louder than words.
After remaining silent for several days, Kanye West has donated $2 million to organizations associated with Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd.
He'll also be supporting Black-owned businesses in Chicago and will cover legal expenses for the Arbery and Taylor families. Additionally, he's started a college fund for Floyd's daughter, Gianna.
