Muo Duo – “20th Century Girl”


A theatrical pop success from sibling act Muo Duo, “20th Century Girl” blends bouncy piano pulses and flavorful brass alongside the duo’s melodic vocal drive. “She’s running out of time to live her life, 20th century girl,” they let out during the magnetic chorus, bolstered by a spacey synth lingering. “20th Century Girl” marks the third single from their EP, The Muo Theory.

“We tell the story of a girl watching the world go by from her cell phone,” they explain. “People were not made for this world run by the internet and social media. When your personality is split in so many mirrors it is hard to keep track of who you really are.”

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
