Get your ears around the new single from Muna

Twenty years after the Spice Girls, here's a more realistic look at Girl Power, courtesy of LA power pop trio Muna.

Loudspeaker "deals with using one's voice to recover from different forms of abuse," say the band, and it includes punchy, direct lyrics like: "I've seen many a friend be silenced /
Thinking nobody would believe them... But every time I don't shut up, it's revolution". So stick that up your zig-a-zig-ah.

The video carries a more metaphorical take on the song's message, as the trio break into a building and claim it as their own. The clip ends with the band and their friends dancing around in the street - because some Girl Power clich├ęs are too good to abandon.

If you want to know more about Muna - they're former USC students Katie Gavin, Josette Maskin and Naomi McPherson, who started off jamming in hotel rooms before morphing into a sort of goth version of Haim. They have the usual social media pages for you to follow.

They can also "cut it" live, as this video confirms.
