See what happens when you sip Muki’s ‘Sassaparilla’ in her debut clip

If you are currently starved for Charli XCX’s once promised album that was heavily rumoured to be produced by SOPHIE (and assumably the PC Music squad) well, then you’re in luck. MUKI is Australia’s very own answer to it all. She’s debuted her first ever single, ‘Sassaparilla’, to global acclaim and has now scored a spot Client Liason’s national tour. She’s going straight to the top just like the bubbles from your first sip of ‘Sassaparilla’.

Borrowing heavily from the phenomenal movement that is PC Music, ‘Sassaparilla’ is an anthem for adding sass to every interaction. It’s the poppy, attitude-laden track to put that bounce in your step. Doubling down on this, Muki’s now dropped her absolutely overdrive aesthetic video to accompany it. It’s a high-concentrate of pop, K-pop and computer-based imagery. Colours are popping at every instant, edits are quick, everyone looks HD real to the point of fake, and it looks amazing. It’s treading in the uncanny valley that makes the entire bubblegum bass/PC Music genre so good. Directed by Matt Sharp, it’s a fast moving visual feast that has Muki as the star of her own weird world. Muki interacts with all of the computer imagery as if she too is part of it, but that’s the grand appeal. Muki is this wonderful beyond-Popstar: she’s an image before you, perfectly made up, perfectly dressed, voice smooth and full of hutzpah. It’s a video that will definitely be devoured into gifs and adored by all, more than likely becoming a K-Pop anthem. It’s the perfect debut video as you couldn’t now not know what Muki is about. She’s all about sippin’ that ‘sassaparilla’.

Muki will be joining Australian King Pins, Client Liason on their national tour, showing the entire country her super sweet brand of attitude. Her debut EP is expected out some time this year and expect it to be just as sugary sweet and meticulously produced as her debut single. It’s going to be Muki all the way to the top.
