JOINING GROUPLOVE ON NORTH AMERICAN TOUR THIS FALL

 

 

(Los Angeles, CA)—Today, Los Angeles-based trio, MUNA, premiere the music video for their latest single, “Loudspeaker”.  Directed by Zaiba Jabaar, the video premiered today on Noisey (Click HERE), which said, “Let ‘Loudspeaker’ be your anthem of the summer: drive fast, kiss hard, and love harder.”  Noisey also stated, “Their debut EP is one of the most cohesive, catchy, and cool collections from a rising band this year.”

 

MUNA stated about the video, “This video was a very collaborative process between us and the director, Zaiba Jabbar. We wanted to portray ourselves and our friends as empowered anti-heroines who reclaim a space to explore and be free. As one of the few self-produced girl bands signed to a major, we have learned to be as self-assured as we are self-sufficient—and we’ve learned to thrive on that. Breaking into a building and claiming it as our own is kind of a metaphor for that experience. Though the song deals with using one’s voice to recover from different forms of abuse, we were interested in filling this video with triumphant imagery rather than imagery of subjugation. It was also important for us to include people in the video who have found their own mediums for self-expression in spite of a multiplicity of silencing forces. Anaka, Pierre, Phoenix, Jasmine, Arin, Sarah, and Ashlen are writers, photographers, designers, poets, musicians, and general creatives that inspire us and our music, so it felt right to pay homage to that in the video. Having a community filled with people we can be open with without shame has allowed us to grow into the band we are today.”

Members of MUNA, Katie Gavin (lead vocals/production), Naomi McPherson (production/guitar/synths/vocals), and Josette Maskin (lead guitar/vocals), have recorded, written, and self-produced all of their own music to date.  Following their outstanding performances at this year’s SXSW, they released their first-ever music video for “Winterbreak” (Click HERE), which is the first song off of their debut EP entitled The Loudspeaker EP, out now via RCA Records.  The 4-track collection of songs perfectly showcases the band’s ear for crafting poignant tunes and gives fans a taste of what is to come on their debut full-length album, which will be out in early 2017.
