When it came time for them to create a music video to their new queer love song, indie-pop band Muna decided to pay homage to a cult classic in queer cinema.
On Tuesday (Sept. 7), Muna released their newest single "Silk Chiffon," featuring their new label-owner Phoebe Bridgers. Described by guitarist Naomi McPherson in a statement as "a song for kids to have their first gay kiss to," "Silk Chiffon" features the trio and Bridgers singing about queer romance and sex, with the song's chorus declaring "Silk chiffon/ That's how it feels, oh, when she's on me."
Alongside the song, the band also unveiled its new video for the track, which takes direct inspiration from the 1999 satiric rom-com But I'm a Cheerleader. In the video, lead singer Katie Gavin, dressed in her best high school cheerleading outfit and playing Natasha Lyonne's titular character, arrives outside of a color-coded conversion therapy camp. She's greeted by a pink-haired Bridgers, playing one of the camp's leaders, and her fellow bandmates, Naomi McPherson and Josette Maskin, each shaking their heads, warning her not to enter.
