NEW MUSIC: MUNA | SILK CHIFFON (FEATURING PHOEBE BRIDGES)
Los Angeles pop trio MUNA has shared a single "Silk Chiffon" featuring Phebe Bridges, their new label boss. Phoebe Bridgers recently signed one-time Band To Watch MUNA to her Saddest Factory label imprint, and they’re supporting her on several dates on her current US tour. “Silk Chiffon” is Muna’s first release on Phoebe Bridgers’ Saddest Factory Records, and it’s one of the L.A. band’s strongest songs yet, an uncharacteristically bright and buoyant declaration of queer love. The artists strike perfect harmony on the sunny, stealthily groovy love song, practically begging for a crowd to join in on a sing-along. MUNA's last LP was 2019’s "Saves the World;" their debut "About U" was released in 2017. Muna will go on tour with Phoebe Bridgers. The band is then scheduled to tour with Kacey Musgraves next year. In a statement, guitarist and producer Naomi McPherson say that “Silk Chiffon” is “a song for kids to have their first gay kiss too.” And if that weren’t already enough for your gay heart to take, the song comes with a sweet "But I’m a Cheerleader" inspired video directed by Ally Pankiw (starring another queer icon, current Vulture Comedian You Should and Will Know Caleb Hearon). “Silk Chiffon” arrives two years after Muna’s breakthrough album "Saves the World," and if their new single is any indication, Muna is bound to gain a wider audience and have their moment.
