In their self-titled debut EP, Melbourne noise makers LOCUS show signs of leading a grunge …
Brisbane indie rock trio Mecha Mecha are back, and they’re ready to take the man-children of the world down—one violin melody at a time.
Having spent the last few months focusing on gigging and recording, the band have undoubtedly crafted their strongest single to date. Greedy Boys sees the band embrace a sense of nostalgia, and borrows the best bits of late 90’s pop rock.
Mecha Mecha have crafted a tune that’s as much at home in a club setting as it is in a bedroom. More, please.
Frontman Walter Webb has said, “The track is about struggling to grow up, and how that failure puts pressure on the women in our lives. There’s this really not good expectation that women mature faster than men, and men can lag behind, a bit like man-children.” Lyrically, this inspiration comes through in spades. Aside from being their most structured and focused work to date, Greedy Boys is also the most scathing.
Don’t let the scathing lines fool you though, this is still Mecha Mecha in a happy mood. Shying away from their darker roots, the band have packed a whole lotta saccharine sounds into the track’s three minute run time. It’s a mix that shouldn’t work, but it does and it’ll have fans dancing through their shows while they question their own man-children tendencies.
Tackling growing up and fighting to move on with your life with a dose of sunshiny indie rock, Mecha Mecha have crafted a tune that’s as much at home in a club setting as it is in a bedroom. More, please.
