EXCLUSIVE: Mountain Bike – ‘Mean With You’ [PREMIERE]

Emerging from the Brussels music scene Mountain Bike aka Charles, Aurelien (guitarist and fill in bassist of Thee Marvin Gays), Étienne (guitarist and lead vocalist of Toulouse, France-based Warm Toy Machine) and Stefano (guitarist of Warm Toy Machine), quickly turned into a friendship and desire to write together. Their new single ‘Mean With You‘ is a razor sharp shot of garage pop woven with scurrying guitar motifs an energetic beat and Etienne’s smart stream of consciousness that pours forth like an unstoppable wave. We have the track premiere above its off their second album Too Sorry For Any Sorrow” album released April 7th.

What originally began as a side-project eventually channelled all of their energy and creativity. The four released their first album on Humpty Dumpty Records in 2014, with the fun and psychedelic ‘I Lost My Hope In Paradise’ leading the way.

The record was well extremely well received which quickly lead Mountain Bike to perform (over 150 shows) around Belgium, France and Holland and be invited to Eurosonic and The Great Escape in 2015.

After a solid two-year run on the road and high from the intoxicating fumes of their beat up van (RIP), time had come for a very mouthy, melancholic and fertile Etienne to put pen to paper and let his bandmates weave their catchy riffs into their second record, Too Sorry For Any Sorrow released this April.

Recorded in a renovated 17th-century barn owned, this second record was mixed in tight collaboration with Staf Verbeeck (BRNS, Selah Sue, Melanie De Biasio, Drums Are For Parade) at Stiff Studio.

They play a date at The Victoria on the 7th of April.
