For some reason I have been very unmotivated to go seek out new and interesting music lately but today I have found something that is worth posting. Dark Mean is a collection of lifelong friends from Hamilton, Ontario Canada. Together they create a mixture of indie-folk and rock with a hint of 80′s keyboard. Each song is worth a listen and each song is completely different from the last. “Frankencottage” is a synth driven pop track while “Happy Banjo” is exactly what you think it would be. A simple piano line drives “China” and a “Lullaby” is a quiet acoustic ballad that would be a great closing track for any album.
Their website is almost non existent, only giving you the ability to download their new 4 song EP for the price of your email address and watch a video for the EP’s title track.
