PREMIERE: The Mean Times Pair Swagger & Style For ‘Be Still My Bleeding Heart’

The Mean Times

Pairing swagger with style in equal measure—with a dash of raucous energy—The Mean Times make music that’s good for the soul and that’s always up for a party. AAA Backstage has the exclusive premiere for Be Still My Bleeding Heart‘s video.

Gritty and menacing, this three-piece from Melbourne enforce a punchy new take on loose party-rock and ska-punk. On Be Still My Bleeding Heart, they add manifold contours they had only touched on previously: more reflection, more power, more production finesse, and crucially more hooks.

Vocalist and guitar player for the band, Tom Morgan, talked about the video’s creation process. They used a snoori-cam—a camera device that’s hooked up to the body.

“Filming this clip was one of the most fun things I’ve ever done. The snoori-cam rig became the appendage I’ve always wished I could have. Taking it off felt like I was losing one of my favourite body parts,” explains Morgan.

The Mean Time have a slew of live dates this March and April, with their official EP launch happening at Bombay Rock on Friday 12 April. Stream Be Still My Bleeding Heart below.
