Watch The Ladies of MUNA Take Charge in "Loudspeaker"
Los Angeles-based MUNA (Katie Gavin, Naomi McPherson, Josette Maskin) have debuted their music video for "Loudspeaker" today. Empowering and confident, the three gals take you through a journey filled with mischief and, simply put, a good time. MUNA takes a catchy pop melody and adds a signature twist, producing a sound that is unique yet accessible. If their music didn't already make you head over heels, check out the visuals and you're set to be hooked.
"This video was a very collaborative process between us and the director, Zaiba Jabbar. We wanted to portray ourselves and our friends as empowered anti-heroines who reclaim a space to explore and be free. As one of the few self-produced girl bands signed to a major, we have learned to be as self-assured as we are self-sufficient—and we’ve learned to thrive on that. Breaking into a building and claiming it as our own is kind of a metaphor for that experience. Though the song deals with using one's voice to recover from different forms of abuse, we were interested in filling this video with triumphant imagery rather than imagery of subjugation. It was also important for us to include people in the video who have found their own mediums for self-expression in spite of a multiplicity of silencing forces. Anaka, Pierre, Phoenix, Jasmine, Arin, Sarah, and Ashlen are writers, photographers, designers, poets, musicians, and general creatives that inspire us and our music, so it felt right to pay homage to that in the video. Having a community filled with people we can be open with without shame has allowed us to grow into the band we are today."
