New York City’s layers of continuous noise – vibrating, reverberating, buzzing & blazing – have set the backdrop to a rising four-piece that NME already calls “one of New York’s most exciting new bands.” Just like the city, The Muckers are equal parts vital and timeless, resolute and vibrant.
Frontman Emir Mohseni moved to New York all the way from his native Iran to pursue a career in music. The move, profiled across acclaimed publications, from Rolling Stone to Billboard, only marked the beginning of the band’s story. Upon landing in this new environment, Mohseni met the three guys that would become his closest friends, and build with him the enlivening sound and enrapturing live show that The Muckers have garnered early praises for: Anthony Azarmgin at the bass, Chris Cawley on rhythm guitar, and John Zimmerman behind the drums.
Endeavor is a fitting title for the band’s debut. Their journey is nothing short of an odyssey: first, as an immigrant taking refuge in New York City to have the right to perform rock music, then as a band caught in the global pandemic who’s had to let go of their greatest strength: thriving on any stage – from performing with Pond in a 800-cap room to making the crowds dance and sweat in the divey bars of Brooklyn.
“My days are numbered / I’m running out of time / I’ve been waiting for too long / Don’t wanna lose it again” Mohseni sings on “Suspended” in an almost prophetic moment. He has battled for years for the right to perform his music live, and just as his dream felt in reach, all the venues of the world shut down at once. But in the face of adversity, The Muckers have never let up their ambition. Listen and you’ll hear why – their music is a thrill worth fighting for.
The group has teamed up with Brooklyn based Greenway Records for their debut LP & their sophomore LP expected early 2023.
