Indie supergroup Muzz, made up of Interpol’s Paul Banks, The Walkmen’s Matt Barrick, and Bonny Light Horseman’s Josh Kaufman, have shared their self-titled debut album.
Banks and Kaufman have known each other since they were teenagers and both members have also worked with Barrick in the past. “Josh has more training as a theory musician while Paul comes from a different perspective,” Barrick explains. “You never know how Paul’s gonna approach a song, lyrically and melodically, so it’s always unusual and exciting.”
“The music has this weird, super removed vibe but is also personal and emotional at the same time,” Kaufman explains. “If something felt natural in a simple way, we left it.”
