EDITORS’ NOTES

MUNA’s 2017 debut About U was a compelling reflection on personal and societal issues that showcased the Los Angeles trio’s left-of-center pop sound. It caught the attention of many, including Harry Styles, who handpicked the trio as his opening act for the North American and European dates of his debut solo tour. New crowds were able to align with the stories of the LGBTQ band (singer Katie Gavin, guitarist Josette Maskin, and guitarist/producer Naomi McPherson all identify as queer), which had the emotive power of making the most isolated individuals feel seen.

Their second album Saves the World details a journey of overcoming anxiety with glittery pop tales about facing impostor syndrome (“Number One Fan”) and getting back into the game after ending a relationship (“Stayaway”). They go full-blown fierce on “Hands Off,” playing with temptation before declaring, “No, you can’t touch, get your hands off of me.” Save The World’s six-minute closer “It’s Gonna Be Okay, Baby” is a hushed pep talk with a past self that foretells the tribulations they’ll experience, but come out on top of.

YUP YUP YUP

LADIES you have done it again, constantly raising the bar for us all AND doing it flawlessly. I’d say I’m surprised, but I know who you are. I’ve seen it up close and personal. You make me so proud

Not a bad song to be found

I wasn’t sure Muna would be able to top the perfection that was About U. This is the Terminator 2 of albums. It’s rare to find and album that you can listen to in its entirety without skipping a song. This is one of those albums. Do yourself a favor and buy this album. And then go buy About U. This album might just save the world ❤️💙💚💛💜🧡
