Muo Duo have released “Exciting Times“, the synth-heavy new single from their upcoming EP, The Muo Theory. The EP follows the band’s 2023 release, Afterpop and marks the beginning of three EPs that the band will drop in the near future. Listen to the song now below.
“This song attempts to capture a snapshot of the culture in 2024,” shares Miles Donnelly – one half of Muo Duo, “The insecurity of existing and trying to make connections that feel real in the world. The struggle of getting out of your own head. Will anyone like us if we are truly ourselves?? And during all these internal struggles, everything seems like it is moving so fast around us. We’re living exciting lives, whether we like it or not. We really are living in ‘Exciting Times.'”
Comprised of Miles and his younger sister Winter, Muo Duo is riding the momentum after the release of Afterpop and their 2022 EP, Tasting Menu. The siblings have amassed a loyal following with their upbeat sonic confections that combine elements of Pop, Rock, Indie, Punk, and psychedelic Hip-Hop.
Miles started studying composition at Juilliard in high school, where he learned all the rules so he could eventually break them. A singer, songwriter, trumpeter, producer, and award-winning film score composer, Miles (also known as Miles from Space) drew inspiration from The Beatles, Tyler The Creator, and Freddie Hubbard while worked to hone Muo Duo’s signature sound.
Winter – who is just 15 years old – has played the role of young Elsa in Disney’s production of Frozen on Broadway. She has appeared on Sesame Street, in Diary of a Wimpy Kid cast album, as well as the hit Netflix series, Manifest. In addition to bringing her immense vocal talent to Muo Duo, Winter has also performed in the children’s chorus at the MET Opera.
