Published Jan 14, 2014Hamilton, ON's Dark Mean have been fairly quiet since their self-titled album in 2011, but now they're preparing to return with a new EP. The first single is called "Albatross," and the track has received its own music video.
The song begins as a mellow, atmospheric ballad, but it builds up as it goes along, incorporating distorted guitars before ending with a punchy, horn-punctuated groove. The Lee Skinner-directed clip emphasizes the song's cinematic qualities, as we see a man revisiting his hometown and facing some slightly mysterious memories.
