Sass queen Muki releases sparkly new anthem Friends Don’t Make Out
The Sydney rising name continues to strive with the long-awaited follow-up to Sassaparilla.
Words by Debbie Carr.
After making an incredible first impression with the sweetly carbonated number Sassaparilla, Sydney’s rising pop star Muki has just dropped a new bubbly track to keep the party going. Friends Don’t Make Out stands as “a homage to the awkwardness of making out with your friend,” weaving through that strange limbo stage of not quite being just friends but also not being able to hold hands, say you miss them or do any of that lovey-dovey business that makes being in a relationship so special. It’s all so real.
Following in the footsteps of PC Music, Friends Don’t Make Out is a welcomed overload of textures and sounds manipulated to make you feel like you’re a five-year-old who’s just downed a jug of red cordial and a bag of popping candy. Muki’s signature sound is stamped all over this one with a series of squeaks, pops and drips upon layers and layers of luscious synths. Her silky vocals float around the madness with ease, giving a personal touch to the colourful backing.
Muki will be showcasing all her sparkly sounds across the country this month, as she hits the road supporting all-round nice guy Paces for the Creepin Tour. You can find tickets HERE.
