Recently, Muzz released their debut self-titled release via Matador Records. The trio is comprised of Matt Barrick on drums, Josh Kaufman multi-instruments, and Paul Banks on vocals. Today, the band has shared a video for “Summer Love.” The track follows previous singles “Knuckleduster”, “Red Western Sky”, and “Broken Tambourine.” “Summer Love” sees muted organ and flute by Stuart Bogie (Arcade Fire) drift along as the song rides out on the main vibe and vocal line by Banks: “Iʼm in the race / Iʼm on the get-go / I wanna skate / I want the XO / Summer love / Summer love ends / Silence is sung we wonʼt remember”.
The video combines, says Banks, “footage Matt shot a few years ago of a deserted drive-through theatre, with clips we individually generated during lockdown and the majestically psychedelic collage work of the great Andrew McGranahan . It’s what we feel is a nice visual poem to accompany the song. Rather than a summer lockdown document, we aimed more to emulate the work of Truffaut, Fellini, or Cassavetes and to capture three stories of romance and solitude. Lofty aspirations, humble result; but we hope you enjoy it even a fraction as much as we did creating it.”
