Muna – Promise

MUNA are an all-female electrowave/dark-pop trio from Los Angeles, formed by Katie, Josette, and Naomi. Their second single Promise is a compelling song made by scratchy electric riffs and thumping synths, where the singer Katie digs deep into the struggle of a complicated relationship, singing “Mean-hearted girls will kill their loves to hurt themselves / They can’t believe that they deserve anything else.

The trio told to The Fader: “We see ‘Promise’ lyrically as a track about misconstruing expressions of passion as authentic expressions of love.
