We are beyond stoked to welcome NYC’s The Muckers to the Greenway Records Family! “Roll The Dice” the first single from their upcoming debut album is out now,  The Muckers a Brooklyn outfit fronted by Iranian émigré Emir Mohseni, fall on the buttoned-up end of that spectrum. “Endeavor”, is the group’s debut album, a wide-eyed paean to the comforts of ’80s radio rock, a mild and uptempo album that revels in Quaalude choruses and room-temperature licks.

In terms of delivery, it’s hard not to draw comparisons to New York proto-retro-rockers The Strokes, whose lyrics are barely more incisive but worlds more convincing. 

Each of these 10 sunny songs plays clean, save for a bit of fuzz. “Roll the Dice” has the sheen and charm of “Jesse’s Girl,” with insistent guitars and a melody that begs for an arm out the window on the turnpike, a smokestack spewing in the background. Anthony Azarmgin’s bass rumbles underneath “Suspended” like a fist pumping to a Springsteen song. “Thunderstorm” and “That’s All I Want” showcase the group’s nimble guitar work, swerving seamlessly between structure and embellishment to flesh out what would otherwise be a series of plodding power chords.
