The Muckers

New York, NY

The Muckers' debut album, the aptly titled Endeavor, comes on the heels of frontman Emir Mohseni‘s journey – nothing short of an odyssey: first, as an immigrant taking refuge in New York City from his native Iran 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 supporting Pond on the road in 1000-cap rooms to making the crowds dance and sweat in the divey bars of Brooklyn. One of their performances, at Treefort Festival, had caught KEXP‘s Cheryl Waters eye who commended them for “captivating the crowds” on her Music That Matters show. The band’s ethos can be heard in tracks like the unrelenting “Roll The Dice” which Mohseni says is about “risking everything you have in life for that one thing that you love the most.” In the face of adversity, The Muckers have never let up their ambition, cutting through the noise with what Rolling Stone praised as “a call to fans to kick the dust off of their souls and boogie.”
