Dynamic and genre-defying sibling act Muo Duo are making their mark in 2024 following the sensational release of their latest single “Highlights” !

In 2020, when the pandemic forced Miles Donnelly and his younger sister Winter to hunker down with their family in a rural area of Vermont, the siblings began making music together, eventually discovering the collaboration to be much more than a way to pass the time.

“Like a lot of people, we were practically living as hermits,” shares Miles. “Making music became a way for Winter and me to escape. It also provided a way for us to connect with other people who were feeling isolated.”

 Miles and Winter quickly developed their unique, genre-bending sound, combining elements of alt-pop, indie, and hip-hop. They recorded their first songs in a sound booth, which they created by leaning two mattresses together. The rest, as they say, is history. Or perhaps, in Miles and Winter’s case, it was history in the making.

 As Muo Duo, Miles and Winter have garnered acclaim not just for their music, but also for their innovative videos and electrifying multi-media live performances.

In 2022, Muo Duo released their debut EP, Tasting Menu, which Wonderland Magazine called “the ultimate appetizer for Muo Duo’s intoxicating flavour – that is at once punchy, soulful, and impossible to forget.” In September of this year, Muo Duo released their second EP, Afterpop.

Now releasing their latest single “Highlights” the group is gearing up for their upcoming EP release!

This song has an intro that will hook you immediately. This track will take you on an Indie-Pop joyride. “Highlights,” is an off-the-wall experience simply describing going out on a Friday night, experiencing the joys of being out in the night air, surrounded by the weird and wonderful goers of the night. The bass-heavy, vibey fever dream features lyrics about flying saucers, alien apes, blue goo, and hot takes. Showing a grittier side of their indie pop sound, this track mixes influences to take the feeling to the next level. It’s really like nothing the world has heard before from this group and with their EP release coming the group is set to explore deeper into the world of synths and electronic indie.
