Watch our full interview with Muki!
Last week, electronic-pop singer-songwriter Muki unveiled her sophomore EP, Car Crash Through Your Heart: Part 1. Featuring the singles Level Mind Fuck, I Make Boys Cry and Space/City Limit, the singer has cemented herself as the queen of ‘future-pop’.
Having written for artists such as Briggs, PACES, The Veronicas and Jessica Mauboy, MUKI stepped out from behind the scenes, launching her career with her debut single, Sassaparilla. Building up a fanbase, and after a string of singles, the singer dropped her debut EP It Won’t Hurt, which landed her a supporting slot on 5 Seconds Of Summer’s Australian arena tour. In 2019, Muki received two ARIA ward Nominations for her co-writing work on Jessica Mauboy’s record Hilda and Briggs’ Always Was EP.
Muki’s latest hyper-pop collection of songs arrives straight from the Mukiverse, an alternate realm that represents the musicians own mind and thought. Pairing together bright sonics with darker lyricism, the release navigates and dissects a toxic relationship, with each track serving differing moments from within the relationship, and its demise.
The EP arrives with a short film, brought to life with multidisciplinary creative Jamin Tasker. Laced with clues and Easter eggs, the visual takes us further into the Mukiverse, fusing together the many facets of Muki’s personality and dimensions to her world. If that wasn’t enough, the singer has also launched a series of digital collectible NFTs, dubbed MukiKards.
To celebrate the release of Car Crash Through Your Heart: Part 1, MUKI will return to the stage with a headline performance at Sydney’s Oxford Art Factory’s Gallery Bar on Thursday, August 12. Speaking to MILKY, the singer shared she plans to transform the venue into the Mukiverse, giving fans an immersive live experience.
