Muna is the self-titled third studio album by American indie pop band Muna, released on June 24, 2022. It is their first album as an independent artist, after they signed with Phoebe BridgersSaddest Factory Records imprint in 2021. It was promoted by the singles „Silk Chiffon“, „Anything but Me“, „Kind of Girl“, and „Home By Now“. The album was met with critical acclaim upon release.

Background

In 2020, Muna was dropped by RCA Records, with which they had released their first two albums, and in May 2021 signed with Saddest Factory Records, an imprint of Dead Oceans owned by American singer-songwriter Phoebe Bridgers. Throughout 2021 and 2022, Muna toured with Bridgers on her Reunion Tour and with Kacey Musgraves on her Star-Crossed: Unveiled tour.[1][2]

Muna will be primarily a synth-pop album, but according to lead singer Katie Gavin, „the sound of this record explodes in a ton of different directions“.[3][4] Guitarist Josette Maskin said of the album, „What ultimately keeps us together is knowing that someone’s going to hear each one of these songs and use it to make a change they need in their life. That people are going to feel a kind of catharsis, even if it’s a catharsis that I might never have known myself, because I’m fucked up.“[5]

Release and promotion

„Silk Chiffon“, featuring vocals from Phoebe Bridgers, was released as the album’s lead single on September 7, 2021. The song is an ode to queer love, and accompanied by a music video paying homage to the 1999 film But I’m a Cheerleader.[6] The song was sent to adult alternative radio on September 27, 2021 and hot adult contemporary radio on March 21, 2022.[7][8] Muna performed the song on The Late Late Show with James Corden on November 8, 2021.[9]

On March 15, 2022, Muna announced the album and released the single „Anything but Me“, a song about „leaving a partnership simply because it doesn’t feel right.“[3] The song was sent to adult alternative radio on March 28, 2022.[10] Muna performed the song on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on April 18, 2022.[11]

„Kind of Girl“ was released as the third single from the album on April 28, 2022. The song „explores the power of language and the words we use to describe who we are and who we want to be.“ The music video features the trio dressed in as cowboys to express the fluidity of gender[12] The fourth single, „Home By Now“ was released on May 25, 2022.[13]

The band will embark on a North American tour in support of the album,[14] followed by nine dates in the UK.[15]

Composition

Muna is primarily a synth-pop[16] album influenced by new wave,[17] disco,[17] and hyperpop.[18] „Silk Chiffon“ and „Kind of Girl“ are both country pop songs,[19][12] with the former incorporating indie pop and bubblegum music.[20] „Anything but Me“, „What I Want“, and „Home by Now“ are all electropop songs, with the latter fusing elements of dance music and emo.[3][21][13] „Runner’s High“ is a disco song about self-care and grieving a break-up, with „hi-hats maintaining a staccato rhythm like a pattering heartbeat.“[22][17]

Every song on the album begins with a quiet introduction that crescendos into the track, „gently easing the listener in rather than hitting them over the head“.[16]

Muna received a score of 87 out of 100 from media aggregate site Metacritic based on 5 critical reviews, indicating „universal acclaim“.[23] The Line of Best Fit critic David Cobbald gave the album a perfect score, saying „MUNA is all killer no filler. From its overall sound down to its finer details, Gavin, Maskin and McPherson have hit the mark completely. It’s amazing to see a band that are so unapologetically queer excel at their craft and create an album that is quite possibly, if not certainly, their masterpiece.“[16] Susan Darlington, writing for Loud & Quiet praised the album’s overtones of „musical brightness and self-acceptance“.[21] David Roskin of Gigwise praised the release, saying „With a collection of bangers, slow tunes and refreshing melodies, MUNA are magic. They’ve created a space for all to lose themselves into for a little while, whether to dance or cry, they’re here to carve through the monotony and troubles of daily life and transport us to a different, brighter, louder, prouder, and safer place.“[18] Ben Tipple of DIY writes „It’s by far the happiest MUNA have sounded; a celebratory expression of queer love that loses none of the trio’s magic.“[22] Exclaim! contributor Dede Akomo wrote that the trio „emits a monstrous amount of something our world lacks: queer joy. Generation Z is no longer satisfied with simply seeing queer characters suffer in their media, and MUNA represent the counteraction to this anguish.“[17] In a five star review, Stephen Ackroyd of Dork called the album „A record that doesn’t just thrill, but empowers too, it’s enough to put MUNA firmly amongst the highest echelon of modern pop bands. Quite possibly the album of the year so far.“[24]

Muna (stylized as MUNA) (/ˈmnə/ MOON[6]) is an American indie pop band consisting of Katie Gavin, Josette Maskin, and Naomi McPherson. They released two studio albums with RCA Records, About U (2017) and Saves the World (2019), before signing with independent label Saddest Factory Records. Their self-titled third studio album was released on June 24, 2022.

History

Based in Los Angeles, the trio met in college at the University of Southern California and began working together in 2013 with Maskin and McPherson playing together on guitars and Gavin adding synth bass and vocals. Gavin and Maskin were music majors, while McPherson double-majored in Narrative Studies and American Studies & Ethnicity.[7] The two guitarists, Maskin and McPherson, had been used to playing ska and progressive rock, but settled on a different sound when their initial collaboration with singer Gavin resulted in a pop song.[8]

Beginning their collaboration in an experimental mode, they evolved towards hooky electronic pop. In the summer of 2014, they self-released their debut EP, More Perfect, on Bandcamp and SoundCloud. Its success led to their signing by RCA Records in the US and Columbia Records in the UK. RCA released their self-produced debut major label EP, Loudspeaker, in May 2016. Their debut full-length album, About U, was released on February 3, 2017.

All three members identify as queer[8] and McPherson is non-binary.[9] Initially wary of being pigeonholed as a „queer band,“ they later came to embrace the opportunity to use their musical notoriety to help inspire younger people to be comfortable with their identities. Their songs frequently address issues of sexuality and gender. They describe one early song, „So Special“, as „an anthem for the slut-shamed girls of the world who have to assert their own value.“[8] According to McPherson, „It would have meant a lot to me when I was, say, 12, to know of someone in a band and think they were cool and know they were out.“[7] McPherson added, „I am out and I feel safe being out because the three of us are a little army for one another. I don’t feel afraid to be myself. That makes me proud to be queer. That’s the whole point of why we do this. We want a safe haven.“[10]

Dutch DJ/producer Tiësto remixed „Winterbreak“ in May 2016.[11] Muna played Lollapalooza 2016 in Chicago in July 2016,[12] toured America with Grouplove in the fall of 2016, and made their late-night network television debut on November 7, 2016 on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.[13] On June 6, 2017, it was announced via Twitter that the band would be the opening act on the North American and European tour dates for Harry Styles. In 2017, their song „I Know a Place“ was featured in The Carmilla Movie, following the original web series based on Sheridan Le Fanu’s novella of the same name. In 2018, Muna was featured playing „I Know a Place“ live in the Netflix movie, Alex Strangelove, which chronicles the sexual awakening of its teen protagonist, Alex Truelove.

In 2018, the band began work on their second full-length record. In June 2019, the band announced their second album, Saves the World, which was released on September 6, 2019. The album was preceded by its lead single, „Number One Fan“, followed by the singles „Who“ and „Stayaway“. Following their London shows at the Village Underground,[14] it was announced that Muna would be returning to the UK for their Saves the World Tour in December 2019.

In May 2021, it was announced that the band signed with Phoebe Bridgers‘ record label Saddest Factory, which operates in partnership with Secretly Group’s Dead Oceans.[15]

On Sept, 7, 2021 the band released their single „Silk Chiffon“ featuring Phoebe Bridgers, their first since signing to Saddest Factory. Rolling Stone called it an „Buoyant track with an uncharacteristically bright declaration of Queer Love.“[16] The song was chosen by a number of publications for their year-end lists of 2021, including Rolling Stone,[17] Consequence of Sound,[18] and Line of Best Fit, who ranked it at #1.[19]

Following an announcement in September 2021, MUNA joined Kacey Musgraves‘ 15-city winter tour with King Princess starting in St. Paul, Minnesota on January 19, 2022 and ending in Los Angeles, California on February 20, 2022.[20]

On March 15, 2022 Muna released the single „Anything But Me“ and announced that their third studio album MUNA would be released on June 24, 2022 through Saddest Factory and Dead Oceans.[21]

Awards and honors

In June 2020, in honor of the 50th anniversary of the first LGBTQ Pride parade, Queerty named them among the fifty heroes “leading the nation toward equality, acceptance, and dignity for all people”.[22][23]
