Alt-rock trio Muules explore timing and complex relationships with new single, ‘It Just Happens’


Sunshine Coast three-piece, the grungy, guitar-less Muules are following up their frenetic debut single ‘Butch Teeth’ with the more emotional new track, ‘It Just Happens’ - a song that delves into the complexities and odd-timings of relationships that are destined to happen.

‘It Just Happens’ will lead in to the release of the band’s debut EP, ‘In The Lines Between’, which will be releasing in early August on all digital platforms.

Of the song, vocalist Nathan Vasey says that the song revolves around the theme of mis-timings and eventualities between two people.

“Some things are just destined to happen, and we often have people that come in and out of our lives for whatever reason, and though you develop connections, the timing just never seems to quite be right, until eventually everything falls into place,” he said.

The song employs simpler lyrics, relying on a more emotional, raw vocal performance over the top of a snaking, building bass lines and rhythmic patterns, with a cracking, belted-out sing-along chorus delivering the heartfelt request - wait for me, and I’ll wait for you.

Muules have had a steady rise in the SE Qld scene, having started out as a small side project for bassist/songwriter Rhys (of roots/reggae outfit, Bearfoot), drummer Nick (of punk trio, Not To Regret), and Nathan, and quickly gaining a reputation for their explosive live sets and tap-dancing effects pedal wizardry which has seen them supporting the likes of Ecca Vandal, (Dune Rats prodigies) Pandamic, Rackett, Hobo Magic and more, as well as a handful of their own headliners.

‘It Just Happens’ is available for streaming via their J Unearthed page, and fully available on the release of ‘In The Lines Between’ on August 10th.
