Atlanta-based quintet Muuy Biien was formed by frontman Joshua Evans, combining quick blasts of squirmy punk with long, ambient compositions, each sharply contrasting the other.
Evans was joined by guitarists Park Miller and Robbie Rapp, bassist Xander Witt, and drummer Jacob Deel. Early four-track demo recordings made their way onto an EP called Knife Fights in early 2012, followed by debut LP This Is What Your Mind Imagines later that same year. The album's raw punk songs channeled everyone from the Circle Jerks

No One Is on My Side (For You), an EP of entirely ambient work produced solely on guitar by Evans, was released in 2013, and sophomore album D.Y.I. (Do Yourself In) materialized the following year. Muuy Biien returned in 2016, working with David Barbe
