WATCH: “Winterbreak” –
After recently sharing their first material of 2016 in the form of new track “Winterbreak”, Los Angeles 3-piece MUNA are back today to share the song’s video.
Featuring a cameo from Ione Skye of Say Anything… fame, the video finds the girls traversing the suburbs — simultaneously exploring themes of going home again, change, maturation, and connection.
Speaking about the video, MUNA says:
“The ‘Winterbreak’ video is about the dual experience of belonging and non-belonging involved in returning to a former home. Often when we’ve visited the places we grew up in, we’ve found ourselves in the strange space between nostalgia and total regression. We visit familiar places in which we no longer fit, surround ourselves with familiar people with whom we don’t necessarily connect anymore, and engage in familiar activities that might normally strike us as incredibly immature. Despite being in the same world we were immersed in as children and adolescents, there is a sense there that almost everything about ‘home’ has changed. Generally for us, the only solace has been really great friends. So we tried to show some of that.”
The video’s release comes in conjunction with MUNA detailing the release of their debut, The Loudspeaker EP, which will arrive on May 6th via RCA Records. The 4-track collection features “Winterbreak” along with “Loudspeaker”, “So Special” and “Promise”. It’s a concise collection of songs that perfectly showcases the band’s ear for crafting indelible pop.
