MUNA – In My Way
Los Angeles-based pop trio MUNA are masters of turning pain into power-pop anthems. On their debut album, About You (February 3, RCA), “Loudspeaker” celebrates surviving abuse; the LGBTQ-positive “I Know a Place” encourages listeners to be themselves.
Today, the trio—frontwoman Katie Gavin, guitarist Josette Maskin, and Naomi McPherson (also guitar)—does it again on their first new track (and video, premiering below) since their record’s release: “In My Way” tackles modern relationship—or, rather, non-relationship—culture, asking: how do you find intimacy during a moment when it’s not always cool to put a label on it, when falling for another person induces not just excitement, but panic. Here, though, rather than focusing on the feeling akin to standing atop a cliff and looking down, Gavin, who penned the track, focuses instead on taking that leap of faith, declaring: “When it unfurls / It’s a sick, sad world / But I’m your girl, even when I’m not your girl / I’m not afraid to say / I love you in my way.”
