The Mean Times have spent the past six years regularly gigging around Victoria and interstate, while regularly falling apart at the ever-expanding seams.
During this time, they have busted out the standalone single, Right Thing, Wrong Time in 2016, which followed their debut 2014 EP, ‘You’ve Got the Wrong Guys’. This EP received a ton of positive reviews and national airplay, while the video for the single ‘Crossing the Line’ was an internet sensation – filmed in a stinking hot, over-40 degree Bikram yoga room, the clip shows the band at their sweatiest physically and their driest humorously.
The Mean Times’ sound is an amalgamation of infectious high-energy, melodious rock and roll, and Good God Almighty fun-times. It’s a pastiche of indie cool, sharp riffs, scuzzy laden confident rock and catchy pop choruses, all delivered with a side serve of tongue in cheek lyrics and a hell of a lot of swagger.
With each of their tracks punchy, energetic and intoxicating, their shows and recordings all emit a lively energy and spirit, with a purposeful stride and focus. With all their songs coincidentally clocking in around the very radio-friendly three and a half minute mark, the band has certainly honed the craft of how to economise each song into a wham-bam-thank-you-Ma’am bite-sized package of sonic fun.
