Muzz—the new supergroup consisting of Interpol’s Paul Banks, Bonny Light Horseman’s Josh Kaufman and The Walkmen’s Matt Barrick—have released a new single titled “Knuckleduster” off of their forthcoming self-titled debut album, which comes out June 5 via Matador.
About the music video, Banks says:
While we were shooting the video for “Red Western Sky,” we discovered this great space underneath the museum. Unplanned, we quickly set up and started filming again – capturing the video for ‘Knuckleduster’ on the same day. Hair was greener and times were simpler back then.
This single follows three others: “Red Western Sky,” “Broken Tambourine,” and “Bad Feeling.” The group have a great chemistry together, and Barrick had this to say about the collaborative effort:
Everybody’s pretty hilarious and good people. Josh is an incredible musician all around and super creative and fun to work with – he’s always thinking of ways to make a song better. It’s a good combo because Josh is more trained as a musician in music theory and Paul comes from a different perspective where he’s playing things that just sound good. Lyrically and melody-wise, you never know how he’s gonna approach a song. It’s always unusual and cool and unexpected.
