News about Brand New releasing new music has become a boy-who-cried-wolf scenario, leaving fans exhausted and confused over the past decade. The group’s new release of “Mene” was no different, but after it was uploaded to their official YouTube channel, the comments and views started pouring in.
The track beings with an intense swing groove, as Jesse Lacey’s aggressive vocals take over the verses. Screaming harmonies recall the days of Deja Entendu, as the words “we don’t feel anything” become the central message that’s echoed throughout. Lacey’s lyrics step in and out of metaphor before the track comes to a quick end - it’s a perfect taste of new Brand New.
The release is intentionally cryptic, but this track should be enough to keep fans comfortable for at least a couple of months. If anything, it’s a secure reminder that the band has plans of continuing their legacy, backed by a physical release rather than circulating internet rumours. -- unrecorded.mu
