MUNA | Texas Review | Ralph Arvesen

MUNA is magic. What other band could have stamped the forsaken year of 2021 with spangles and pom-poms — made you sing (and maybe even believe) that “Life’s so fun, life’s so fun,” during what may well have been the most uneasy stretch of your life?

“Silk Chiffon,” MUNA’s instant-classic cult smash, featuring the band’s new label head Phoebe Bridgers, hit the gray skies of the pandemic’s year-and-a-half mark like a double rainbow.

Pitchfork called it a “swirl of stomach butterflies,” NPR a “queerworm,” Rolling Stone “one of the year’s sweetest melodies, radiating the kind of pure pop bliss so many bands go for but almost never get this right.” For Naomi McPherson, MUNA’s guitarist and producer, it was a “song for kids to have their first gay kiss to.” And several thousand unhinged Twitter and TikTok memes bloomed.
Lovely show, had the best time! The setlist was amazing, and the performance was outstanding, just the absolute best vibes ever. Hope to go to another MUNA show someday.

They are amazing live! If you have a chance to go to a Muna concert, you should go! The energy is high and it literally sounds like you’re listening to the album!

Such a great show! MUNA are very infectious performers and make you feel like you are having fun on the stage with them!
MUNA shared the stage with Taylor Swift and GAYLE at AT&T Stadium. They continue across the United States and Europe with the last stop at the Reading Festival in Reading, Berkshire on August 27, 2023.
