MUNA - Loudspeaker

Los Angeles-based dark pop trio MUNA make a welcome return today with their latest offering entitled "Loudspeaker", which serves as the follow-up to their previous two singles, "So Special" and "Promise" and the third in a series of four new singles that MUNA plan to release over the course of this year.

Speaking on the track, MUNA's Naomi McPherson says:

"'Loudspeaker' is like the thesis of MUNA. It’s a good introductory song. It’s like our mission statement. We describe ourselves as punks or rebellious spirits making pop music. I think this song is the most concise synthesis of that. It hinges on the idea of freeing yourself and not caring what other people have to say about it. I think that can apply to anyone that’s ever experienced any kind of... not just people talking down to you, but people saying or behaving toward you in a sexist way or a racist way, or any kind of oppression. We want this song to feel applicable."

Listen to "Loudspeaker" below.
