Mountain Bike – Mean With You (Video Premiere)
Watch the fun-filled new video from Brussels garage rockers Mountain Bike
Belgian four-piece Mountain Bike's sound is a mixture of woozy slacker pop and sharp garage rock nuggets – Mean With You, from the band's second album Too Sorry For Any Sorrow, falls firmly into the latter camp. Recorded in a renovated 17th century barn after "a solid two-year run on the road and high from the intoxicating fumes of their beat up van", the band – guitarists Etienne Marsal and Aurélien Auchain, bassist Stefano Bedani and drummer Charlie Vanderborght – channeled the energy and melancholy of their touring run on the new LP.
Describing the fun-packed monochrome video for Mean With You, vocalist and guitarist Etienne Marsal says: "This video was made by friends for friends. We've decided to focus on the fun side of the band, working with the talented Olivier Donnet and Jonathan Pau. We really like their work and they're also close and good friends." It's a friendship that comes across in a clip full of synchronised dancing, split-screen singalongs and some pretty great air guitar moves. Watch it in the player above.
