I swear the first thing I thought of when I heard this dude’s music was ‘holy shit it’s a guy version of freezepop been indie-fied!”
And that’s totally it, Muscles’ music is so happy and upbeat and electronically based it’s awesome. There’s nothing heavy here – I know someone said that all music is political etc etc blah blah but whatever; the album name is ‘Guns, babes and lemonade’.
It’s not just music, it’s definitive. It’s a reflection of pop/hipster culture where it is now. And probably throughout the ages. Carefree, dance and happy with lots of flashing lights and tinkly noises. Muscles has certainly filled a niche here in Australia.

If you like, remember to check out the Presets too. Less bright, more tending toward an industrial sound – almost nine inch nails-esqe.
