Mixed Music Bag – week 12

Part two of the May mixed music bag. Bands or soloists whose name starts with an M.

This week I’ve chosen the English rock band; Muse.

Muse are from Teignmouth in Devon, England and were formed in 1994. The band consists of Matt Bellamy (lead vocals, guitar, keyboards), Chris Wolstenholme (bass guitar, backing vocals), and Dominic Howard (drums).

Muse released their debut album, “Showbiz”, in 1999, showcasing Bellamy’s falsetto voice and a melancholic alternative rock style. Their second album, “Origin of Symmetry” (2001), incorporated wider instrumentation and romantic classical influences and earned them a reputation for energetic live performances. “Absolution” (2003) saw further classical influence, with strings on some tracks and was the first of seven consecutive UK number one albums. They have sold around 40 million albums up to 2022.
