MUNA’s “One That Got Away” is the Perfect Summer Self-Love Anthem

On April 14, 2023, MUNA performed a new, unreleased single during the first weekend of their Coachella set on the Mojave stage. The song was a high-energy bounce-back anthem highlighting self-love with an addictive synth backing, exploring themes like emotional vulnerability and walking away from unproductive relationships.

This song is just rubbing your hot a** in the face of someone who messed up their chance of being with you.

The comment holds true when looking at their lyrics with lines such as “You’re the one who can’t pretend that/There are no consequences to what you do/But the truth is that it’s costly/Baby, ’cause you lost me.”

The song is the perfect inclusion on playlists for bouncing back from things like an ended relationship or failed talking stages. During the song, the band paints the perfect picture of being done with the emotional gymnastics of dealing with a finicky lover with lyrics like: “If you never put it on the line/How am I gonna sign for it?”

The pop trio dropped the single along with a music video directed by Ally Pankiw and Taylor James, starring the three band members: Katie Gavin, Naomi McPherson, and Josette Maskin. The music video depicts the trio operating inside the mob and viewers watch as the band walks away with suitcases full of cash after serving poisoned spaghetti and meatballs to the mob boss.

Dually, the song serves as a proclamation of valuing yourself, allowing it to connect with anyone who knows that they were the best their ex was ever going to get.
