EDITORS’ NOTES

On their debut album, MUNA deliver politically charged power pop with an awesome ‘80s spin. Radiating with activist energy—they address women’s rights (“Loudspeaker”), abusive relationships (“Crying on the Bathroom Floor”), and national tragedies (“I Know a Place,” a tender ballad written about the Orlando shooting)—and luscious electronica, About U is a no-brainer for fans of Fleetwood Mac and Chairlift.

Every Song is MAGIC to My Ears

Artheater2010,

The first 4 songs, released in their EP, were magical. I can't imagine the rest of this album is going to be any different.

As each song was released, I would have them on repeat in my ears whether working, writing or driving to work. The vocals and technical arrangements of each song help transfer an emotional experience that ranges from peace to longing to empowerment to inquiry. Give them a try, and I don't think you will be disappointed you did!

Beautiful

what a banger

Kamyr,

this is a Bop™

About MUNA

Formed at the tail-end of 2013 by vocalist Katie Gavin, guitarist/vocalist Naomi McPherson, and guitarist/vocalist Josette Maskin, who met while studying at the University of Southern California, MUNA quickly put together their debut EP, More Perfect. Released in mid-2014, the EP brought together their love of '80s new wave and synth pop, R&B, and modern left-field pop. The trio spent the next year writing new material -- signing to RCA in the U.S. and National Anthem in the U.K. in the process -- before releasing their sophomore EP, Loudspeaker, in May 2016. By the end of the year, MUNA had recorded their debut album, with the resulting About U appearing in early 2017. It was co-produced by the band and Dan Grech-Marguerat (Radiohead, Lana Del Rey.) A follow-up non-album single, "In My Way," arrived in September of that year. ~ Rich Wilson
