MUNA
MUNA
The best bands are the ones that operate like gangs, the ones who formed to kick back at the world and act as a kind of orphanage for similarly displaced youths. Said bands don't care about anything as much as they care about being that band. Music becomes the unifier, a language that can be joyful and sorrowful at once, and always cathartic. The pure authenticity of the band is in their refusal to pander to rules and expectations. It's their way or the highway. MUNA are that band. They finish each other's sentences, they are one another's biggest cheerleaders, they have a language between them that defies American English, and in conversation they can't wait to get onto the subject of their shared queerness as fast as possible. MUNA came together like a ride-or-die clique would form in a cult classic teen movie. If three's a crowd, MUNA are the one you wanna hang with. Imagine the opening scene. It takes place at USC in LA, sophomore year. Katie Gavin, a newly arrived transfer student from NYU, is walking out of an African Diaspora class where she's just met a cute girl with a twice-pierced nose called Naomi McPherson who she wants all her friends to meet

In their hook-laden songs, MUNA may come across as broodily as the soundtrack to 'Donnie Darko', all Joy Division lyrical moroseness and Tears For Fears chiming melodies, but IRL they possess the college humour of 'Beavis & Butthead' and the bitching aloofness of 'The Craft' via the charm of pretty much every great '90s girl band. Via memorable headscarves, premature life crises, and three individual obsessions with making music, MUNA arrived at their self-described "dark pop" of 2016 and a debut EP in 'Loudspeaker', which they take full credit for. Their listening sessions comprise of everything from Fleetwood Mac and Talking Heads to Massive Attack, LUSH and Cocteau Twins.
Lo Moon
Lo Moon
Lo Moon are a three-piece band based in LA who's debut song, a 7-minute sprawling anthem called “Loveless,” is already receiving early love from the likes of NPR Music, KROQ, KCRW, KEXP, Buzzbands LA, and more. The song was recently featured on NPR’s “Heavy Rotation” list for 2016, with notable music programmer Bruce Warren of WPXN calling it “shimmering, immersive, and otherworldly... Loveless is a stop-you-in-your-tracks kind of song.” The song has already had over two million streams since it was released in the fall. The band are currently putting the finishing touches to their debut album and will be releasing a music video by Warren Fu (Daft Punk, Strokes, Killers) for Loveless shortly.
