Dubbed “one of New York’s most exciting new bands” by DIY Magazine, The Muckers formed in the city of Tehran, Iran before landing in NYC in the summer of 2017, where they’ve forged a reputation for an exhilarating live show, supporting the likes of Shannon and The Clams, Jacuzzi Boys, and Rey Pila. Last November, they released a 3-track effort boasting unapologetic funk-laden disco grooves tied together with early-aughts-MTV-era guitar licks, lauded “a record that shimmers with fire and possibility” in a recent Rolling Stone profile retracing the band’s formation, “a story of sacrifice, conviction and persistence against huge odds,” which frontman Emir Mohseni also recounted in details via Billboard.

    “Within his songs, you can hear both [Emir Mohsseni’s] years of repression and the joy of his newfound freedom. It’s a call to fans to kick the dust off of their souls and boogie.” Rolling Stone

    “Rock and roll is a dish best served live. It relies on the body heat and energy exchange between the band onstage and a sweaty audience to create a magic you can only experience, and lose yourself in, when you’re watching it unfold in person. Emir Mohsseni knows that cardinal rule.” Billboard

    “There’s not even the slightest chance of you reaching for the shuffle button.” DIY Magazing
