about

Right Thing, Wrong Time is the first track to come from The Mean Times debut album, due for release in mid-2017. It’s the long-awaited follow up to their debut 2014 EP, ‘You’ve Got the Wrong Guys’.

The single was recorded at the end of October with early 90's 'Roxus' legend Andy Shanahan producing, engineering and mixing at Secret Sound and Fuse studios in Melbourne. Right Thing, Wrong Time captures the band's lighter sound trying to contain the fuzzy guitars of their live sound. A quirky little pop number with chugging, sparse verses and a catchy as hell chorus, the song is about all the stuff you've ever dreamed of, coming at the wrong time. Like when you're old and can't enjoy it as much.

With touches of Pavement and flecks of Blur, it's possibly more 90's-sounding than your Great Grandma impersonating Home Improvement's Al Borland.

lyrics

We are living on the sun
Got no time for anyone
Bringing everybody down
Yeah, you’re bringing everybody down

Cigarettes and bubblegum
We have only just begun
Letting everybody down
Yeah, you’re letting everybody down

Cos you know, yeah you know

You got the right thing at the wrong time x 4

Spend your life in uniform
Ride your flaming unicorn
Bringing everybody down
Yeah, you’re bringing everybody down

Pieced together, neverland
Your forever severed hand
Dragging everybody down
Yeah, you’re dragging everybody down

Cos you know, yeah you know

You got the right thing at the wrong time x 4

Instrumental


You got the right thing at the wrong time x 4
Right Thing
Right Thing
Right Thing at the wrong time


We are living on the sun
We have only just begun
Bringing everybody down
You’re bringing everybody down

about

The Mean Times Melbourne, Australia

The Mean Times sound is an amalgamation of infectious high-energy, melodious rock and roll, and Good God Almighty funtimes. It’s a pastiche of indie cool, sharp riffs, scuzzy laden and 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. ... more
