"We made it to the desk!"

Following the critical acclaim of the third studio album, their first Coachella performances, and a sold-out tour around the U.S., pop band MUNA are the latest musicians to appear on NPR's Tiny Desk concert series.

“It’s very cool to see that everyone who works for NPR is gay,” joked frontwoman Katie Gavin.

"Everyone who works for NPR had to be gay, politically speaking," added guitarist Josette Maskin.

The band performed three songs during their 16-minute set: "Loose Garment", "Stayaway", and a country/Americana version of their gay anthem "Silk Chiffon." Let's go, lesbians!

The bandmates had plenty of banter between songs and shared a special message for the LGBTQ+ community, which hit especially hard during the last few days of a turbulent Pride Month.

"We love being queer, and we find a lot of joy in it," said Gavin. "We think, like, if the world is gonna change in the way that it needs to, it’s very important for our revolution to be based on joy, and what brings us joy, and chasing after that."

MUNA is spending the summer opening a few shows for Taylor Swift, touring through the UK, and the band just sold out two Los Angeles shows at The Greek Theater in October. If you're impatiently waiting for new music, you might have to keep waiting for a while. They discussed their single "One That Got Away" with Out in May, making it clear to fans that it was not part of a new album. "I hate to break it to everyone, but speaking on behalf of the band, it's just a one-off little ditty to feed everyone because everyone was very hungry," said Naomi. Fans will "have to go hungry for a while until we do what we're gonna do next."
